Student Stories

As part of the experience abroad, ILR students on International Experience grants are required to give a report regarding their international experience.

Below are just a few of the nearly two hundred reports our students have generated:

Inspired by an admissions brochure’s feature on Randi Weingarten ’80, President of the American Federation of Teachers, I applied to the ILR School three years ago with the intent of merging my strong interest in education with the school’s focus on organizational behavior and unionism. The independent research project that I was able to conduct, thanks partially to my International Travel Grant, allowed me to closely analyze issues of privatization and unionism in public education.

From becoming comfortable riding in a minivan with 30 people standing, eating beans and rice cooked by mama, watching a chicken being slaughtered and cooked, seeing herds of zebras and giraffes from only ten feet away, and forming intimate relationships with the people I've met, I can safely say that Moshi, Tanzania, or specifically KCMC Road, feels like my second home.
