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.
