 Rick Tagne

Rick Tagne (Global Semester: U.S. Diplomacy and Policymaking) created and led a University of Maryland team to fundraise for a non-profit called, “The Adventure Project.” This non-profit organization provides poverty stricken communities the tools, training and resources to become an entrepreneur and help their own communities by addressing issues such as improving health and decreasing hunger. Rick’s team raised $1,100 dollars that helped create two jobs in Kenya and Uganda, impacting a total of 371 locals. In addition, Rick was accepted in the prestigious joint BA/Master of Public Policy Program at the University of Maryland. In spring 2016, he will intern for The Judge Alexander Williams, Jr. Center for Education, Justice and Ethics at the University of Maryland.
