Reconnecting with WICE Alumni
WICE ALUMNI: WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
To recognize and pay tribute to former members of the WICE community – students, instructors, volunteers, board members, staff, friends – who have played a role at WICE since its creation in 1978, we are gathering a wide range of stories to highlight the experiences, activities, and achievements – in Paris and beyond – of those who have passed through our door in the past forty years. If you would like to submit your own WICE story, or the names of former members that we might reach out to as candidates to be featured here, please send your suggestions to Roberta Vellvé. Many thanks in advance for helping us strengthen connections and celebrate the successes of our WICE community.
