Engage with the Real World

Insider Insights

Sometimes it’s scary to think about what comes next. But getting to know people who work out in the real world and have the chance to ask about how they got there helps to let us know that we can do it too. The Institute brings in practitioners to discuss their work and pull back the curtain on career paths of all kinds. This is networking done right. Sign up for our weekly Global Research Digest to receive updates about Insider Insights and other events.

DC Day

DC Day is an opportunity to experience what it’s really like to work in DC through a day of informal meet-and-greets with friendly alums who are interested in your academic work and want to see you succeed. They were right where you are now and know how it feels! This event occurs each July during our summer research session. To participate, join one of the Institute's research projects for summer term.
