Students participating in the fourth annual Botin Institute arrived at Brown this week to begin the U.S. portion of the program. The 40 participants are students from across Latin American who have a vocation for public service. They will spend a week at Brown taking part in activities geared to public service and leadership, as well as workshops, seminars, and lectures by Brown faculty, former President of Chile Ricardo Lagos, Anna Cano Morales of the Latino Policy Institute, and other experts on Latin America. Then they will travel to Spain for the remainder of the 10-week program, working with academics and policymakers. The program is a collaboration of the Botín Foundation, headquartered in Santander, Cantabria, Spain, and Brown’s Program on Leadership, Liberal Arts and Public Service, which is managed by the Watson Institute and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.Read more
