Announcements

UVA Global Internship Initiative

UVA is currently in the process of setting up a global internship initiative. The idea is to work with alumni to identify internship opportunities around the world (across a diverse array of industries) and connect them with outstanding UVA students.

The University recently appointed Prof. Majida Bargach to head up this initiative. She will be in Paris January 16th to 19th (Thursday through Sunday) and is hoping to be able to meet with alumni in the area to discuss potential internship opportunities.

If you’d like to help connect UVA students with local internship opportunities, she would be absolutely thrilled to be able to meet with you to provide more information. If you are not available during this timeframe, do not hesitate to inquire directly with her if you’d like to hear more about this initiative. Prof. Bargach can be reached at mb9bg@eservices.virginia.edu.

Volunteer Opportunity with the The Tocqueville Foundation

The Tocqueville Foundation is seeking mentors from the local business community for its “Civil Society Student Challenge”, a programme that pairs groups of university students with organisations to address various strategic or managerial problems. If you are interested in mentoring or would like to know more, please contact Brenna Lundstrom (UVA CLAS ’06) at brennalundstrom@gmail.com.

Is there a local event or volunteer opportunity you’d like to share with the local UVA community? Please send your announcement to hoosinparis@gmail.com and we would be happy to run it on the website, as well as the Club’s Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter pages.
