1st Annual Global Development and Education Symposium

Folsom Stadium Club, Boulder


The Symposium will bring together policy and education leaders to present and exchange ideas on the future needs for global development education. Students are increasingly demanding that societal relevance and discussions of solutions to real-world problems be incorporated into their education. Meanwhile, many public and private sectors employers expect their new workers to solve problems in new ways, especially working with multiple stakeholders who bring different perspectives and skills to the problem-solving process. In response to this increasing demand for change, the Symposium will combine keynote speakers, panel discussions, and a discussion forum to begin a dialogue between various groups in and around CU Boulder on ways that higher education can better prepare students for the global workforce, with a focus on finding sustainable solutions to new education models.

Visit the symposium website for details at​ and registration information.
