"They help us mold our ideas into a very coherent statement and with that we build a very professional roadmap. This, combined with in-person mentorship and lab sessions is unmatched in terms of opportunity and learning environment.” – Jessica Kort, SIC Award Winner 2016
TBI seminars have grounded me in my education, reinforced the passion I feel for human rights, social justice, and peacebuilding, and have encouraged me to pursue a career focused on immigration and the fulfillment of human rights. – Kaitlin Meyer
Coming to the Kroc School has helped me gain the practical skills for conflict analysis in conjunction with international negotiations. Now, when I see injustice, I feel compelled to speak up because I have the background and the context to deal with it. – Elizabeth Spangenberg
