The Office of International Programs is pleased to announce the7th Annual Student Conference on Global Challenges.
This full day conference will bring together a multi-disciplinary group of students, academics, and activists to address a diverse set of issues related to this year’s topic of GENDER. This conference offers students opportunities to share their research and engage in critical reflection and dialogue about sex and gender as it relates to the diverse disciplines of health, education, science, human rights, technology, medicine, law, media, economics, politics, culture and history.
There will be six student panels open to undergraduate and graduate students.
• Global Science, Technology, and Society
• Global Health
• Global Media, Culture, and Arts
• Global Justice and Human Rights
• Global Business and Economics Trends
• Global Political and Social Trends
How can you and your students get involved?
This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience presenting on an academic panel and using their knowledge, diverse cultural frameworks, and different disciplinary perspectives to think critically about global challenges associated with gender. We hope you will forward this on to your students.
Please encourage your students to apply to present on a panel and/or register to attend the conference activities.
The student conference is free, open to the public and will include breakfast, lunch, and a networking reception with raffle prizes.
