Time: All day conference
Venue: Behrakis Hall Grand Hall , Creese Student’s center, 32nd and Chestnut  Street.

The Office of International Programs is pleased to announce its 6th Annual Student Conference on Global Challenges. This full day conference will bring together a multi-disciplinary group of students, academics and activists at Drexel to address a diverse set of issues related to this year’s topic of SECURITY.

SECURITY: What does security mean in 2013 and beyond?

Throughout the conference, participants will engage on challenging global security issues, including but not limited to environmental security; information and internet security; health, gender and human security; security technologies and the business of security; national and border security; and the role of media in security.

The conference will take place on Friday, March 1, 2013 and will culminate with an exciting keynote address by Ambassador Thomas Graham, Jr. Internationally known as one of the leading authorities in the field of arms control agreements, Ambassador Graham has served as a senior US diplomat involved in the negotiation of every major international arms control and non-proliferation agreement for the past 40 years including START, SALT, ABM, NPT, CTBT. He also serves as the Executive Chairman of Thorium Power, a company that holds patents on a new type of nuclear power fuel based on thorium.

Student panelists will generate their own panel presentations and participate in question and answer sessions facilitated by faculty moderators. The six panels are:

  1. Justice and Human Rights
  2. Global Health
  3. Science, Technology, and Society
  4. Global Business and Economics
  5. Media, Culture, and Arts
  6. Global Political and Social Trends.
