EMU junior Jason Dwyer is interested in a career in public policy. The Fairfax, Virginia, native is double-majoring in political science and history and envisions a job someday at the U.S. Department of State.
So, when Dr. Kristina Hook, a former State Department policy adviser for mass atrocity prevention, visited EMU last week to present on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Dwyer jumped at the chance to see her speak.
“It was fascinating and interesting to see someone in the field talk about what they’re passionate about,” Dwyer said. “It was cool, especially to hear not necessarily what you get on the news.”
