InteRDom to Forge New Relationships—And Strengthen Old Ones—in Georgia

Share on:

Students at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and the University of Georgia’s School of Law (UGA) will have the opportunity to meet with InteRDom representatives on their campuses from October 23-25, 2013 to get more information on how participating in an internship in the Dominican Republic can help them grow professionally.

On Wednesday, October 23rd, from 6:00 – 7:30 pm, InteRDom representatives will give an information session at Georgia Institute of Technology, co-sponsored by La Unidad Latina, Lambda Upsilon Lambda Fraternity at Georgia Tech.  This is the first event for InteRDom on the Georgia Tech campus, and the representatives are excited to make new connections and form new programs with this prestigious school. All students, regardless of their affiliations with this fraternity, are encouraged to attend.

On Thursday, October 24th, from 2:30-3:30 pm, InteRDom representatives will continue to strengthen their relationship with UGA and welcome law students as well as Latin American and Caribbean studies students to an information session, in conjunction with the Global Internship Program (GIP), the Georgia Society for International & Comparative Law and the Office of Student Professional Development. This event will be an opportunity for students to receive more comprehensive information on internship possibilities in law, development and other fields related to Latin American and Caribbean studies in the Dominican Republic.

While presentations on campuses and connecting with students is of great importance, meeting with faculty and staff members who can help to make InteRDom a more permanent program on campus is also a priority. In that regard, InteRDom will also meet with key faculty and staff at Georgia Tech and UGA during their visit.

InteRDom owes a special debt of gratitude to María Eugenia Giménez, Associate Director of the Dean Rusk Center for International Law and Policy at UGA, and student leader of La Unidad Latina at Georgia Tech, Edward Aguilar, for co-hosting our events.

InteRDom, an initiative of Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE), is the premier internship, research and academic study program in the Dominican Republic. It offers international students the opportunity to research important topics at the forefront of the United Nations agenda, obtain professional experience by interning with Dominican organizations and businesses related to their fields of study and/or earn academic credits by taking courses and seminars at a local university.
