You may have already met the 2017 CRS University Engagement Summer Interns in this blog post, but they are not the first and will not be the last! The CRS University Engagement team has had a history of outstanding interns doing great work! You can meet them here and check back every year for information as the list expands!
This summer, we are excited to honor 6 of our CRS Student Ambassador Chapters across the country for their great work on campus! We've been posting their stories and pictures from the year on Instagram, which you can check out here: http://bit.ly/2sLelXa. Read on to see what they've been up to... and maybe to steal some of their ideas for your own campus!

Each year, members of the Catholic Relief Services community travel around the nation to speak about the work they do in their respective countries and how the different programs of CRS work with their communities. This year, Cecilia Suarez, Head of Office for Catholic Relief Services Mexico, was the guest speaker for the CRS Rice Bowl Encounter Tour in the Northeast Mid-Atlantic Region.
We recently took a few moments to check in with Amelie at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette about their campus fair trade efforts. We hope that their example will be an inspiration and a guide to other campuses looking to more fully integrate fair and ethical trade.
