Conferences/Forums

Students at FDU have great opportunities to participate in major conferences hosted by the United Nations in New York at the headquarters and sometimes abroad. This section of the Global Learning website is devoted to sharing those experiences with our visitors, including impressions, lessons learned, information garnered and even photos and video clips. These opportunities are made available to students as a result of their involvement in programs and events hosted by the Office of Global Learning/United Nations Programs. This is facilitated through our internal partnerships with the Global Scholars programs, as well as diverse student organizations and academic departments on all FDU campuses promoting student engagement in issues and topics of major interest at the United Nations and FDU, as well.
