SUNY/CID Spring 2014 Interns: Susanne Siebel, Sandra Sanya, Gabrielle Juers and Blair Williams

SUNY/CID is pleased to continue its internship program by welcoming its Spring 2014 interns. SUNY/CID interns provide invaluable assistance to CID projects and administration by working closely with CID staff on projects ranging from Eastern Europe, South Asia, and Africa. The contributions provided by interns to SUNY/CID help to further integrate the connection between the academic and practical characteristics of international development exemplified by SUNY/CID’s philosophy of connecting people and ideas for integrated development.

Throughout the year, SUNY/CID provides excellent, advanced undergraduate and graduate students from the University at Albany and other colleges and universities with the opportunity to work as interns in order to contribute to our work in international development. At CID we integrate students into our substantive work while providing them with practical opportunities to engage in research, contribute to project management, and assist with various programming.

Specifically, interns this semester will work on a wide range of topics from researching Democracy and Governance, writing project success stories, assisting with project management, and maintaining SUNY/CID’s website and social media accounts. Please join CID in welcoming:
