Join the Office of Global Engagement for the 14th Annual Student Conference on Global Challenges on Tuesday, May 18th, 2021 via Symposium.
Some of the biggest global challenges that we face today, such as climate change, healthcare, security, justice & equity, access to food and clean water, education, and infrastructure are being approached with sustainable solutions, creative technologies, and a commitment to community engagement. With increasing global interdependence, we need to tackle these challenges both locally and globally and from a variety of different perspectives – scientific, economic, political, social, and cultural.
With this in mind, Drexel University’s Office of Global Engagement’s 14th Annual Student Conference on Global Challenges will have the theme of “Disaster!” The conference gives undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to present their research and engage in critical dialogue regarding the multitude of perils that impact society’s well-being — from climate and natural disasters to pandemic and economic threats.
Note: the conference will be held virtually on Symposium. The keynote speeches and panels will be accessible via Zoom, and the poster presentations will be accessible on Symposium. Access to Symposium will be granted to those that register.
