MSFS Partners with Chevron in New Communication Clinic Series

by Kristen Voorhees, MSFS Communications and Events Coordinator

The Master of Science in Foreign Service is delighted to announce the launch of a professional development series, sponsored by Chevron, to advance the communication skills of its graduate students. Following years of collaboration with Chevron, MSFS will offer a new series of Chevron Communication Clinics beginning in the fall of 2016. The series is a compilation of several events throughout the academic year to provide MSFS students essential communication skills in preparation for their careers as leaders in international affairs.

“MSFS is truly excited about our continuing partnership with Chevron,” says Tony Arend, Director of MSFS and Senior Associate Dean of Faculty and Academic Affairs of the School of Foreign Service. “We are particularly excited about Chevron's sponsorship for our new series of Chevron Communication Clinics. As MSFS works to prepare women and men to be creative leaders in international affairs, it is critical that they develop effective communications skills. In a world of diverse cultures and political systems, the ability to understand and engage with others is imperative for promoting a peaceful and prosperous international society.”

Thanks to Chevron’s continued support of the program, students learn proven techniques in creating a charismatic presence to help build the bridge from effective communicator to a compelling and creative leader. The customized sessions give participants the skills needed to be clear, credible, and confident in all presentation contexts.
