The Global Citizen Forum is comprised of a series of events drawing on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a thematic lens, taking place annually in the spring semester.
The Forum was established as the co-curricular arm of the Engaged Citizen Experience, part of the Drake Curriculum which aims to ensure students will learn to participate effectively in democratic processes through coursework and classroom and community activities. The ECE seeks to mobilize the entire campus community to discuss a critical theme or global issue.
Past events have involved collaboration among Global Engagement, Academic Excellence and Student Success, the Nelson Institute, the Principal Center for Global Citizenship, Community Engaged Learning, Professional and Career Development Services, and other partners on and off campus.
The 2024 Global Citizen Forum will take place March 6-8 and will once again feature the Nelson Student Research Symposium. More information coming soon!
