"Ms. Hunt and seven other GSPM students spent their first week of August in Istanbul, where they met with high-powered decision makers in an examination of advocacy in the Turkish Republic. The global perspectives residency is one of a series GSPM Director Mark Kennedy has led since arriving at the George Washington University in 2012. Those trips have led to the creation of a new master's program, Advocacy in the Global Environment, which includes immersion residencies similar to the stand-alone trips currently offered."
