Dr. Eimear Spain congratulating Colin Higgins, a 4th year student on the Law Plus Economics degree on being offered a place on the prestigious Washington Ireland Programme. The Washington-Ireland Program for Service and Leadership (WIP), is a six-month program of personal and professional development that brings university students from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to Washington, DC for summer work placements and leadership training. The program begins and ends with practical service in Northern Ireland and Ireland. In Washington participants gain first-hand experience of a mature political process and are exposed to a culture of diversity. Through an intense eight-week schedule, WIP participants are formed into a team and challenged to develop their vision for the future of post-conflict Ireland. Congratulations to Colin.
