Conferences on Global Affairs

The Global Citizen Forum is a conference focused on themes of global importance that takes place in March each year. 

The Forum is part of Drake‚Äôs overall Engaged Citizen Experience (ECE). The Nelson Institute partners with the ECE, Global Engagement, the Principal Center for Global Citizenship, The Office for Equity and Inclusion and the Office of Community Engaged Learning to present The Global Citizen Forum.

As in years past, the Global Citizen Forum will feature the Nelson Student Research Symposium, giving Drake University students the opportunity to share their research. This year's theme is "International Perspectives on Racial Justice," and the forum will be held March 3-5, 2021.
