Thanks to your generous support we have more than a quarter of a million dollars in our IPED Endowment Fund. This fund enables our students to pursue internships, language immersion programs, and other field placements which provide invaluable learning experiences outside the classroom to support their career goals of becoming global changemakers. While our 40th anniversary fundraising drive has come to a successful conclusion, we still welcome additional contributions. Please donate to the IPED Endowment Fund!
