As the relative power of the United States’ global competitors increases, key aspects of global security rest increasingly on the capacity of great powers—China, the EU, India, Japan, Russia, and the United States— to cooperate in tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Among these are climate change, cyber security, illicit trafficking, pandemics, proliferation, and terrorism. Because of their transnational nature, collaboration amongst great powers is essential to address these challenges; yet cooperation is hardly guaranteed. Can adversarial relationships be set aside, frayed alliances restored, and old arrangements re-purposed to achieve the broader common good?
On January 27, at 6:30 p.m. EST, the Center for Careers and Internships and Middlebury in DC, in collaboration with the Middlebury Professional Network and the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, will host Live From DC: Global Security and Great Power Relations, a discussion among professionals who have a variety of vantage points on these and other transnational security issues and possible solutions.
This discussion will be conducted via Zoom webinar, connecting the professional guests with students from both the Middlebury and Monterey campuses, as well as, alumni and parents of the Middlebury community. The panelists include:
- Host: Mark Williams, Director, Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, Middlebury College
- Stewart M. Patrick P’24, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations
- David Wisner ’04, Deputy Director for Press & Strategic Communications for Near Eastern Affairs Bureau, State Department
- Stone Conroy ’10, Manager, Geopolitical Analysis & Intelligence, United Airlines

The El Pomar Internship is a unique summer program that introduces continuing undergraduate students to the nonprofit sector and provides an opportunity to develop professional interests and skills. Interns work with and are mentored by leaders in philanthropy. They serve an important role by providing administrative support for the Foundation’s offices. Interns receive assignments based upon the Foundation’s needs and, to the extent possible, the Interns’ interests. Interns participate in a weekly professional development series which provides insight into and practice in a professional atmosphere. Examples of past courses include investments, grant making, networking, public speaking and career planning. Each Intern fulfills an individual role but also receives meaningful interaction with the Intern class. While each Intern has a distinct learning experience, all have the opportunity to learn concepts through hands-on practice and receive the support and guidance to develop professionally. Applicants should demonstrate strong professional skills, skills in verbal and written communication, organization and time management skills, and a willingness to learn.

Apply for a Privilege & Poverty National Summer Internship
The Privilege & Poverty Academic Cluster offers funded summer internships locally, and around the U.S. through its participation in the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty.
Middlebury Deadline: Friday, January 15th
Middlebury College is one of over twenty member institutions of the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty (SHECP), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the proliferation of poverty studies programs at colleges and universities in the U.S. Middlebury regularly sends 5-7 students to participate in this summer program.
This opportunity is open to students in all majors and career paths. If accepted, you will be matched with an agency that fits your interests and strengths. Located in urban and rural sites, internships offer opportunities in advancing social justice and implementing poverty interventions in areas including: Community and Individual Services; Education and Youth Outreach; Health and Wellness; Immigration and Refugees; and Legal and Business Management.
The Consortium’s internship program includes eight weeks of summer fieldwork bookended by opening and closing conferences, during which student interns come together with peers from other schools (and with faculty and staff) to critically reflect on their experiences. The closing conference also includes an annual symposium on a topic important to understanding poverty.
Please consult this flyer for more information about the application process. If you have any questions on whether your virtual service experience could qualify for funding, please reach out to Ashley Laux at email@example.com or (802) 443-3099.
