Unlike the Santiago Center Spanish language program that has been running since 2008, this spring-only program will allow students with little or no background in Spanish language to immerse themselves in Latin American culture.

Students with more advanced levels of Spanish can still participate in Syracuse Abroad’s Santiago Center and Santiago Center: Buenos Aires Immersion programs during the fall semesters.

Syracuse Madrid students make headlines in Spain

Syracuse University students currently studying in Madrid, Spain made their way onto the local news earlier this month. During their first week in Spain, while participating in the Syracuse Madrid Marine Ecology Signature Seminar, students partook in a unique activity giving back to the ecosystem that caught the attention of the local media in Alicante.

Torrevieja TV covered the story and noted the work of the Syracuse University students and their impact on the environment. Their volunteer work removing vegetation and plant life was a hands-on learning experience that demonstrated how different civilizations have “humanized” the Mediterranean environment.

Council of Europe reception held to honor collaboration with Syracuse Strasbourg

To celebrate 30 years of collaboration between the Council of Europe and Syracuse University, the Consul-General of the United States, Darragh Paradiso, hosted a reception on September 29, 2022. In attendance was Raymond Bach, outgoing Director of Syracuse University Strasbourg; Darragh Paradiso, US Consul-General; Bjørn Berge, Deputy Secretary-General of the Council of Europe; and John Goodman, current Director of Syracuse University Strasbourg.

The reception highlighted the hundreds of Syracuse Strasbourg students who have interned at the Council throughout the years and was a great opportunity to thank Council staff for their mentorship of Syracuse students. Deputy Secretary-General Byørn Berge spoke on the fruitful relationship and the need to strengthen and carry forward the ties between the Council and Syracuse University.

On Twitter, Bjorn Berge recently tweeted about the reception and his appreciation of the strong partnership with Syracuse University:

“The partnership with Syracuse University highly appreciated by @coe spreading knowledge of work and values of the CoE among young people in Europe and beyond, is a priority for us; and we benefit greatly from their new and insightful ways of looking at things @USAStrasbourg.”

The Council of Europe includes 45 national Member-States from across Europe encompassing 650 million people. The Council is the continent’s leading human rights organization located in Strasbourg, France.

As an opportunity exclusive to students on the Syracuse Strasbourg program, a limited number of internship placements are available at the Council during the semester and over the summer, providing a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students interested in politics, human rights and international affairs.
