Dr. Rob Gordon reports on Alumni Success!

Our alumni are EVERYWHERE!!

On a recent research trip to Namibia, Dr. Gordon had the good fortune to meet up with Anne Angarola (class of 2010) who was in Windhoek, the Namibian capital setting up an exchange scheme for talented African leaders for IREX a DC based international non-profit organization which promotes local leadership and institutions in many parts of the globe. It was great to catch up with her over some good Namibian beer. She has certainly packed in a wealth of experience since leaving UVM including ten years of experience working with Jifundishe, a small development NGO based in rural Tanzania and obtaining a Masters degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from George Mason University. Prior to joining IREX she worked at the US Institute of Peace in their Center for Gender and Peacebuilding.


Another Alumnus has achieved fame and fortune in Switzerland. Jenna Iodice (Class of 2006) has been chosen for the Swiss Ultimate Frisbee Team. In between training sessions she managed to obtain a Masters in International Relations from Syracuse and is a Project Officer in the Migration Health Division of the International Organization for Migration in Geneva (Switzerland, not upstate New York!) where she has undertaken missions to Nepal, Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. She is hoping to pursue graduate studies in the Anthropology of Health and has been accepted at Oxford.
