Summer Intern Victoria Lacombe

This summer the CGT hosted an intern from Phillips Exeter Academy. Rising senior Victoria Lacombe spent four weeks with the CGT, investigating issues related to the health and wellbeing of global youth in support of our signature research project, “Youth in a Changing World.” This is the second year of the CGT-Exeter internship.

“My experience with the Committee on Global Thought allowed me to explore the art of efficient research and to find in-depth and thought-provoking information regarding global youth, all while exposing me to Columbia’s campus and life in New York City,” Victoria noted. “I couldn’t have asked for a better environment for learning, not only because of Columbia’s campus and resources, but also because of the small but warm community the CGT staff built for me.”
