Time for a prepared impact after the Social Change School’s fellows graduation
After months of preparation, Social Change School’s fellows have been awarded their well-deserved Master Diploma in Rome, the 15th of October 2017. The city’s sunny sky reflects the happiness of the fellows and the satisfaction of their lecturers and coordinators.
The 14th of October 2017, students proved their skills and knowledge by attending the final exam, presenting their group project works. The evaluation committee consisted of: Stefano Oltolini, Director of the Master in Project Management for International Cooperation; Lodovico Mariani, Director of the Master in Humanitarian Operation in Emergencies, Finance and Administrative Director at Amref Health Africa – Italia; Silvia Fontana, Head of Social Change School Career Development Unit, Development and Public Policy Consultant. Social Change School’s President, Marco Crescenzi presided over the committee.
For Stefano Oltolini “Your energy, a fresh energy, is extremely important: with your new perspectives and solutions, you fuel everything. Don’t ever lose it”.
Silvia Fontana shared three principles with the fellows: passion, empathy and preparation. To use her words “these are the drivers of the students’ future work, working together towards a resilient society”.
With the words of President Marco Crescenzi:
“We really feel the responsibility: we doubled the staff, we are working for the community of fellows. We are not only thinking about the Master programme, so this is not the end. I have never seen this level of engagement in the people working in the sector, we are always looking for something more. I believe we all did a good job, both you and the staff”.
After the speeches of staff and fellows, the graduation ceremony ended with a moment of conviviality and joyous exchange.
Once again, we are extremely proud of our students and wish them the best of luck for their future in the sector. As Silvia Fontana said, you are now ready to “go and make a prepared impact”.
