Stanislas Phanord, SSH’14, political science major
As one of only six U.S. students to earn a Fulbright/French Government English Teaching Assistantship, Stanislas is one step closer to his goal of becoming an advocate for underprivileged and traumatized youth. Stan, a first-generation college student, has navigated his academic, co-op, and Dialogue of Civilizations experiences with exceptional interpersonal skills and cultural sensitivity. His international experience includes a six-month co-op at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy and stints studying French in France and Morocco, which prepared him for his most recent work in Senegal as a human rights advocate for destitute young boys.
