Development and Human Rights Night:
Thursday, April 20, 2016 6-8pm Trabant MPRs B & C
As part of our week long awareness campaign, Seva Week, buildOn will be hosting the first ever Development and Human Rights Night where students can learn the breadth of career choices related to international development and human rights and how to get started at UD. RSOs from campus who are working under this theme will have tables set up where you can learn about the work they are doing and how to get involved. From there, buildOn at UD has invited a panel of speakers to discuss their careers and work. The panel will specifically focus on current work on the continent of Africa as this is where our chapter is currently focused. More details to come soon!
