Successful Inaugural IDPP Residency Period Comes to a Close
August 12, 2011
The Institute on Disability and Public Policy (IDPP)’s first residency period welcoming the incoming student cohort who will earn a Master’s of International Affairs in Comparative and International Disability Policy (CIDP) at American University’s School of International Service (AU SIS) ended on a high note last Friday, July 29. “This has been a fantastic two weeks,” stated Ambassador Luis Gallegos, Chairman of the Global UN Partnership for Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies; Chairman of the Global Universal Design Commission; former Ambassador of Ecuador to the United States; and an IDPP adjunct faculty member at AU SIS’ International Communication Program, who will teach a fall CIDP course on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. “I have very much enjoyed learning from and with you during this residency period, and I look forward to our journey together,” the Ambassador told CIDP students during his closing ceremony address.
