International Public Service Association's (IPSA) Voices from the Field Series: Bridging Theory and Practice in International Development

Every summer, graduate students from NYU Wagner find exciting opportunities to travel abroad and engage in international public service, research and project management. This past summer, four MPA/MUP students from Wagner traveled to Egypt, Ghana, Guatemala and Zambia. As IPSA Summer Fellows, they have been sharing their experiences online through monthly updates and multimedia on the IPSA at NYU Wagner blog.

On Tuesday, November 5, 2013, IPSA will be showcasing their stories as a part of our fall Voices from the Field Series, a multimedia presentation and panel discussion on working abroad and bridging theory and practice in international development. In addition to the summer fellows panel, four NYU Wagner alumni will share from their professional experiences. Voices from the Field is an opportunity to learn about international development projects across the world, gain insight on landing an international, paid summer internship, and interact with fellow students on the realities of international public service.
