To celebrate an upcoming 50th anniversary in 2010, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Washington Center chose eleven American university students to increase awareness of its data and research in their academic and local communities.
One of those successful programs last year was that of USC’s own Lauren Goodwin, who was one of four student ambassadors that earned a trip to Paris to participate in the OECD Forum in May 2011.
Halfway through their 50th anniversary year, the OECD has renewed the Student Ambassador Program at USC for the 2011-2012 academic year along with eleven other universities in the U.S. and Canada: Boston University; Columbia; Duke; Georgetown; George Washington; Harvard; University of Michigan; University of Southern California; University of Texas, Austin; University of Toronto and Vanderbilt.
