Global Citizen Forum

The Global Citizen Forum is a series of events that focus on themes of global importance. The forum takes place every March and is part of Drake’s overall Engaged Citizen Experience (ECE). 

The forum features the Nelson Student Research Symposium, giving Drake students the opportunity to share their research. The forum is a collaboration between the ECE, Global Engagement, the Nelson Institute, the Principal Center for Global Citizenship, the Office of Community Engaged Learning, and various other campus offices based on the year's theme. Take a look back at past Global Citizen Forum events.
