Students Examining International Policy at CSIS During Spring Break

by News Bureau on Friday, Mar. 15, 2013

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., March 15, 2013 — Thirty Southeast students will spend their spring break next week at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C., where they will participate in a four-day seminar on international policy. This remarkable opportunity allows Southeast students to work with the researchers and consultants who advise national leaders in the top levels of government as they develop policies and strategies that will affect the United States and the global community.

With some of the world’s leading experts as facilitators, including former U.S. ambassadors and undersecretaries, students will have the opportunity to look at significant social, economic, environmental and political issues from a global perspective. Additionally, free time will allow for tours of Washington, D.C., attractions and government offices. Participants also will learn about government service opportunities in a “Washington, D.C., Career Panel” of young staff members from legislative and executive branch offices. In addition to the trip, students will participate in a seminar on campus this semester to discuss their final CSIS group project.
