Department of State’s Invitation to Participate “WONK TANK” and Present in Washington, DC

The Baker Center solicits faculty to participate with their students in Diplomacy Lab with the US Dept. of State.  This unique opportunity connects students and faculty with real issues and real research in collaboration with the Dept. of State.

Please share this opportunity with your students as it requires a quick turn around and is an independent project. The State Dept. is offering a competition (patterned after “Shark Tank”) called Wonk Tank.  Please see the details below and the information in the attached flyer.  The deadline to  enter with a brief video and paper is January 15, 2016, but the competition opens Dec. 15.

Please contact Nissa Dahlin-Brown if you decide to compete!
