MAIS Students Adam, Hilina, Anwar, Samantha, and Ahmed experienced conference planning first-hand in May during the Sudan Studies Associations’ 33rd Annual Conference. Together, they organized panels, created surveys, developed a website, collaborated with guest speakers, developed an outreach plan, and more.

This summer, Duyi, Adan, and Hillary are completing their MAIS internships at the International Rescue Committee in Oakland. As Senior Resettlement Interns, they are each working with newly arrived refugees to help facilitate activity-based community Orientations sessions. Keep up the great work, MAISers!
Last week, MAIS students Liz and Samantha collaborated at an Amazon Watch mixer, where they networked with local donors and supporters. Keep the internship photos coming, MAISers!
We are finalizing our fall workshop and social dates, prepping for Orientation, and more.
