It’s a busy summer here in Luxembourg! In addition to our base program, MUDEC is hosting our summer internship program, two Honors programs, and an intensive Nursing program. July will see the return of the annual English Language Learning camp, which allows students of education at Miami to plan lessons and activities for local school-aged children and gain hands-on experience with foreign language instruction. All in all, over 100 students will participate in programs at the center this summer.
Many programs means many Study Tours: in fact, there are five different tours running in six different countries this summer. The base group got back from Sicily two weeks ago, and will be departing for Warsaw and Gdansk, Poland next Monday. The Nursing group embarked on a four-day tour in the region of Geneva, Switzerland, where they visited the International Red Cross Museum and ventured into the French Alps. One Honors group spent a week in Berlin studying representations of identity in journalism, and the other enjoyed a four-day tour in the Netherlands on the theme of the Dutch economic golden age. For our summer students (as for all MUDECers before them), Luxembourg is their home, and Europe is their campus.
MUDEC has also welcomed several visitors from Oxford, including Dean Jenny Darroch of the Farmer School of Business, Dean Jason Lane of the College of Education, Health and Society, Dean Beena Sukumaran of the College of Engineering and Computing, and Vice President Cristina Alcade from the Office of Institutional Diversity & Inclusion. A delegation from the city of Oxford, Ohio has planned to visit Differdange later this summer to celebrate the two towns’ status of “Sister Cities.” With such vibrant programs and so many strong partnerships, the future looks bright for students from all academic backgrounds at MUDEC.
