Those interested in social media can gain experience in global targeting, pre-planned messaging, management of editorial calendars, and much more.

Finally, students interested in writing can be members of the program's website development team, which is responsible for creating Luminary biographies, articles on events, and editorial features that focus on the Luminaries program as a whole.
