CR Summer Field Program

For the past four years, the CR Program has offered an intensive international summer internship program for first year students. Selected students have been placed at leading local and international organizations conducting innovative peacebuilding and conflict resolution work. The summer internship program provides students with a meaningful, hands-on practical experience in the field while contributing to capacity building on the ground.

Building on the CR program’s extensive connections with organizations around the world, students have interned at organizations in diverse locations including Kenya, Brazil, Indonesia, Colombia, Liberia, and Turkey. The summer field program provides students with a unique opportunity to learn, assist partners on the ground, to engage in reflective practice, and improve their skills in order to be more competitive in the job market upon graduating.
