[PAST EVENT] Network with Students at the Washington Center this Summer
As part of the D.C. Summer Session program, students spend one week in person at the Washington Center visiting sites around D.C. and learning from professionals who are pursuing careers related to their course. As part of this program, we provide students with the opportunity to network with folks that have professional experiences related to what students are studying in their course. This event allows students to practice their networking skills and these conversations will focus on your career start and path thus far, industry experience, and lessons you've learned along the way.
This networking session will be with students taking a course called The Religion & Politics in the U.S. which focuses on the relationship between religion and politics in the United States and beyond. This course deals with key issues around topics including: religious freedom (the free exercise of religion in America as well U.S. foreign policy efforts for religious liberty abroad); the separation of church and state (its history and challenges to it); Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and challenges faced by religious minorities in the U.S.; American discourses of multiculturalism, religious pluralism, and interfaith dialogue & tolerance; and the influence of Christian nationalism and the Religious Right in American politics.
The networking reception is casual, low pressure way for you and students to connect. Heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks will also be provided!
