Opportunities for Students
The Inserra Chair is committed to providing opportunities to MSU and High School students for the acquisition and application of knowledge about Italian culture through ad hoc projects and regular programs in line with a current philosophy adopted in the education system.
The Inserra Chair spearheads, supports, and supervises special projects in collaboration with outside partners such as media, theaters, film productions private businesses, foreign universities, consular offices and titling agencies. These educational activities create pre-professional opportunities for students as integrated components of the regular course curriculum, which have a long-term effect on student success.

These projects confirm the dynamism of the Italian program’s course offerings and the interdisciplinary nature of its vision. They are also closely aligned with the University’s 2011 Strategic Plan including increasing real-world work experiences for students via internship and co-op opportunities.
