Meet Our StudentsNicolette San ClementeCTSS Intern/International Business Major, 2018
Through her internship with CTSS, Nicolette and 4 others students developed and launched an award-winning non-profit Countering Violent Extremism program.I don’t think I’ve ever been more fully immersed in a work style experience that involved collaborating with others to solve a problem and that was really fascinating and I learned a lot about terrorism.
