Event Description
The Office of International Programs is pleased to announce its 6th Annual Student Conference on Global Challenges on Friday, March 1, 2013 from 8:30am-4:30pm in Behrakis Grand Hall. 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? From cyberspace attacks on government intelligence to food scarcity in South Sudan, the security choices we make today will directly impact the world of tomorrow. Throughout the conference, participants will engage in discussions on 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.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience presenting on an academic panel and sharing ideas with others. Continental breakfast and lunch provided.

The Conference 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. 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.
