By partnering with NGOs, Seattle University's International Development Internship Program and Research for Development Graduate Program challenge students to explore the root causes and consequences that undermine the well-being of people in the developing world.

We believe an experience combining academic and personal understanding of issues relating to development and social justice provides a more powerful transformational element and stronger continued commitment to these important issues.
