GSP End of Year Symposium- April 11th 2014

The Global Scholars students have been working all year in their Collaborative Groups on Research Action Projects, examining local or global social justice issues. By reflecting on this year’s theme; The United Nation's Millennium Development Goals (UNMDG).  The groups were each assigned a specific UNMDG, they have identified unique research questions, explored existing literature on these topic, written literature reviews, conducted their own action (i.e., survey dissemination and analysis, service learning engagement, event hosting). This Symposium is an opportunity for the 12 Collaborative Groups within GSP to present on their research questions and findings as well as what they learned through this yearlong group process.

The Symposium will include:
•A keynote from GSP Alum, Vikram Sridhar of The Boston Consulting Group
•Reflections from GSP student leadership on their year’s accomplishments
•Formal presentations by each of the 12 GSP Collaborative Groups on their Research Action Project
•Certificate conferral to GSP students and acknowledgement of the GSP graduating class
