This UN Day Campus Speaker Event is to honor United Nations Day, the anniversary of the UN Charter and has been recognized as a day to promote human rights, social progress, and world peace. The event will be bringing in speakers who have a direction connection with various bodies of the UN who will speak to raise awareness for human rights education. For example, we will be hosting speakers who work or have worked in the UN Foundation, UNFPA, and UN GAID. The theme of the event is “Global Goals, Local Leaders”. The purpose of the event is to educate and inspire undergraduate students to learn more about the UN and find ways to actively involve and promote the UN Global Goals, either through advocacy or supporting established UN initiatives.

Attending this event will count toward Sophomore Honors.
