Katja Greeson is an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation German Chancellor Fellow with the Arbeitskreis Deutscher Bildungsstätten (AdB), and member of the UNC TAM Class of 2019. Her current research on German and US youth civic learning policy and practice combined with her academic background in transatlantic politics has demonstrated how integral people-to-people and civil society exchange is to the European-US relationship in facing today’s most pressing challenges.
Chloe Gruesbeck is a current UNC TAM student, and a member of the UNC Class of 2020 with degrees in Contemporary European Studies and Political Science. Chloe is a Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellow, where she studies Arabic in the European context. Previously, she interned at the U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress (FMC), where she organized congressional exchanges to European capitals, aimed at fostering transatlantic diplomacy and civic connections.
Jalyn McNeal is a current UNC TAM student, a member of the UNC Class of 2017 with a degree in Global Studies, and a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. An avid language lover and travel enthusiast, Jalyn received a grant for his first passport in undergrad which allowed him to hone his knowledge of French and Arabic through studying abroad in Morocco, France, and Jordan. Feel free to ask him about how language-learning and international experiences shaped his life.
Garrett Workman is Senior Director of European Affairs & US-UK Business Council at the US Chamber of Commerce where he focuses on strengthening the economic relationship between the United States and Europe. He is a member of the UNC TAM Class of 2009. Garrett will underline the importance of the transatlantic relationship to North Carolina’s economy and discuss how his international experience from UNC helped jumpstart his career.
