Academy for Cultural Diplomacy

The Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies (CCDS)


This page gives details on the Alumni Association within the Center for Cultural Diplomacy Studies. The CCDS Alumni Association is an excellent resource which brings together former and current students into one unique network so they can share experiences, ideas and information.

Alumni Association

The Alumni Association is important as it creates the opportunity for students and former students to have an input in the future of the Academy by making suggestions of where improvements can be made, and a chance to propose various internship exchange programs so that students can develop their future career prospects. The Executive Board (comprised of former CCDS students) and ICD Advisory Board oversees the organization of the Alumni Association and provides a strong support system for new students on their arrival and pre-arrival.

The Alumni Association also has a strong presence within social media outlets, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, to create a platform for interaction between the current students and alumni. In this way, alumni can share their experiences, offer advice on how to make the most out of one's placement in the CCDS and keep in contact with the CCDS and the ICD itself. 

Your time with the CCDS does not just stop when you graduate, the CCDS strives to be there for you even when you have finished your studies and are pursuing your career. We make it a priority to maintain a close relationship with former students and endeavor to assist them in any way possible, whilst welcoming any feedback which could aid the CCDS, and its students, to reach their full potential.
