Summer 2020 Report

The Student Diplomacy Corps looks forward to a time when young people can once again explore beautiful cultures across the world. In the meantime, two new initiatives are keeping the SDC community connected:

SDC@LIVE allowed students to build community and engage with the world while safely sheltering in place.

An eight week lineup of master classes featured: a professional dancer in Chile, a Spanish Picasso expert, the Director of Meditation Training at the University of Wisconsin Athletics, a famous Maori rights activist in Aotearoa and a nationally renowned journalist.
