May 23, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - Michael Knight, who just completed his sophomore year at DePauw University, is participating in the International Mission on Diplomacy in Brazil, which began yesterday and continues through June 4.

In particular, Knight will explore the modern-day issues that drive the need for strong diplomatic ties between Brazil and other countries of the Americas.
As our country focuses on building global networks with the aim of negotiating through international conflicts, individuals like Michael Knight are seeking out opportunities to learn how other countries utilize their diplomatic corps," John Hines, executive director of Envision Institute, says in a news release. "The International Mission on Diplomacy engages its participants to learn from individuals currently leading cooperative efforts in staving off potential international conflict."
