"The CIR program was both challenging and rewarding. I truly appreciated the high level of academic rigor, the opportunities for career development, and most importantly the people I've had the pleasure to meet and call my friends."
--Joy Lin, AM'16, Presidential Management Fellow
"During my time at CIR, rigorous graduate-level coursework, weekly academic workshops, and a master's thesis project considerably sharpened my analytical skills and refined my research interests within the areas of political violence and comparative politics. Working closely with my faculty thesis advisor, CIR preceptor, and other faculty at the University of Chicago proved essential in preparing me for a doctoral program in political science and ultimately, an academic career."
--Drew Stommes, AM'15, PhD Student at Yale University
