Meet-ups Around the World

The extended CIE community has more than 600 members scattered around the globe.  Most of our graduates are working for INGOs, working with multi-lateral agencies, working in education in their home countries, or doing freelance consulting.  One or more CIE graduates can be found in almost any major city in the world. Together they form an unusual and dynamic international community.


Graduates from different generations often meet or find themselves working together, and if they don't know, they quickly discover that they share a common heritage with CIE.  The Meet-ups below are examples of interactions in the off-campus CIE community.
