Student Conference on Global Challenges: Life in the City
Student Conference on Global Challenges: Life in the City
The Office of Global Engagement is pleased to announce the 16th Annual Student Conference on Global Challenges. The conference will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2023, at Behrakis Grand Hall in Philadelphia with the theme of “Life in the City.”
Graduate and undergraduate students can submit brief abstracts for consideration to present at the conference by April 21, 2023. Students can apply to register as a panelist or poster presenter, and anyone can register for free as an attendee.
About the Student Conference on Global Challenges
With the growing populations of cities worldwide, it is critical that the private, public and civic sectors collaborate to solve challenges related to climate change, food and housing insecurity, economic inequality, education, cultural preservation, and access to innovation and technology. How do we address these challenges in a way that benefits people around the globe?
The conference provides undergraduate and graduate students with an opportunity to present research and engage in critical dialogue regarding what it means to live in the modern-day city.
Drexel University was a co-sponsor of the 2022 Philadelphia World Heritage City Celebration, celebrating the city’s status as the first U.S. designated World Heritage City. The Office of Global Engagement looks forward to engaging with local organizations in support of this event.

Exchange – Public Health Careers: The Women’s Health Edition
Public health is such a wide-reaching net. It can be difficult to navigate this sea of career opportunities. Exchange is here to clear the murky waters and distill clarity. Exchange: The Women’s Health Edition points the compass squarely to the health of women, which is integral to the function and furtherment of society. We know healthy women improve the health outcomes of their families and communities; yet, women are facing more health challenges than ever before, including decreased access to essential health and community services; increased risk for certain diseases (when compared with men); and increased risk for violence against them. Fortune smiles on us as we explore the various vocations that provide hope, help, access, and stability to the women they serve. Exchange connects students with panelists who each detail the path taken through education, experience, and employment that led to their current position in women’s health care. Broaden your horizons and set your course to a new, rewarding destination with Exchange.
