Here’s an internship opportunity that I would have leapt at as an undergraduate:
The TuckGo program ensures that Tuckies have boots-on-the-ground exeprience in international consulting work:
It is critical for leaders today to have a global mindset to successfully navigate the different cultures, economies, and markets in which they will work.
A global mindset has three components: tangible skills required to work across cultures, knowledge and an understanding of the world, and the willingness to operate outside of one’s comfort zone.
Developing a global mindset means immersing oneself in the culture of another country. Tuck has developed a set of carefully designed immersive experiential courses that take place in various countries around the world. To fulfill TuckGO, sometime during their two years at Tuck, each student must participate in at least one such course in a country that is new to them.
Four activities satisfy this requirement: a Global Insight Expedition, a qualifying First-Year Project, an OnSite Global Consulting assignment, and an international exchange with one of Tuck’s partner institutions. Students can also propose an alternative means of meeting the requirement that must be approved in advance.
I wish that the administration would make participation in a Dartmouth off-campus program mandatory for all undergraduates. They would benefit from the experiences that Tuckies enjoy.
Addendum: As the saying goes, TuckGo projects are all over the map:

When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
