For the fifth consecutive year, InteRDom participated in the events of the annual Dominican Student Conference, held April 8-10 on the campus of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. This year, program representatives met with Dominican college students from all over the country to discuss their academic and career goals and life after college.
InteRDom representatives were present during the Saturday workshop sessions to distribute materials, talk with students and network with experts presenting on topics such as sex tourism, baseball and transnational identity formation.
The event was hosted this year by the QuisqueYalies, Yale’s Dominican Student group, which hosted the first-ever conference 5 years ago. The theme, “Rooted and Growing,” celebrated the conference’s fifth anniversary and the growth that the Dominican student community has experienced in the past five years.
InteRDom’s yearly participation in the Conference is part of the efforts that its parent institutions Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and its sister organization in the Dominican Republic,FUNGLODE, make to strengthen collaboration with the Dominican descendants and professionals living in the United States and abroad. It is also part of InteRDom’s commitment to internationalization and multicultural understanding.
