Graduate students hear all the time that they need to plan for their professional futures. They also need to prepare to take advantage of the unforeseen opportunities that they are likely to encounter. This winter, four SPP faculty practitioners will share their career stories with CEU students. We will hear from a drug policy expert, a human rights policy advisor, a researcher with the World Bank, and the co-founder of an international human rights organization. This is a great opportunity to learn about the roles both planning and chance can play as individuals chart their paths.
