  2. #HellerAtWork Congrats to Julia Szendro, MA COEX'17, who received a prestigious fellowship from Harvard Law School's Program on Negotiation to support her practicum work in Boston prisons. Julia says, "Over the summer I will be working with the MA Office of Public Collaboration to bring mediation services to incarcerated people in Boston prior to their release from prison. The model is based on mediation services offered at correctional facilities in Maryland. The intent is to build connections between people and their natural supports prior to leaving prison, hopefully improving outcomes during this extremely difficult transition." #HellerSchool #HellerHustle #coexistence #criminaljustice #conflictresolution #gradschool

  7. #HellerAtWork Rachel Gold-Brown, MA-SID/COEX'15, recipient of the Boren Fellowship in Tanzania. On her blog (dhahabu-in-tanzania on Tumblr), Rachel says, "This past week was awe inspiring to say the least. Since I have moved to Tanzania, as a student of Swahili for a whole year with the Boren Fellowship Award, I have dedicated my time and attention to Swahili language learning and of course, I could not help myself, engaging in a little community organizing to improve local business and planning with a group of women." #HellerSchool #BorenFellowship #Brandeis #BrandeisUniversity #Tanzania #internationaldevelopment
