On Friday, October 30th, Fordham IPEDers spent the day at the United Nations, learning about some of the UN agencies and the important work they do.
The day started with a visit to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). IPED recipients of the Arrupe Fellowship serve as interns at the UNDP during their time at IPED.
The day continued at the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
Lunch was served at the Delegates Dining Room of the United Nations.
After lunch, the tour continued across the street at the U.S. Mission to the UN.
The day concluded with an official tour of the United Nations.
IPED students had the chance to learn about the history and current work of United Nations, speak to IPED alumni about how the program impacted their careers, and explore the possibility of working with the UN in the future.
