2017 OACS Global Service Symposium

Posted by on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 in featured, news.

In partnership with International Education Week, Vanderbilt students, faculty, and staff are invited to the second annual OACS Global Service Symposium on Thursday, November 16th from 3:30 – 5:30 PM in Alumni Hall 100.

Reflect with students from the 2017 OACS Global Service cohorts about their 6-week summer engagements with community partners in Rabat, Morocco; Port Elizabeth, South Africa; London, England; and Quito, Ecuador, where they learned about inequities and systemic injustice within the context of issues such as human rights, education, public health, and community development through direct service and capacity-building initiatives. Hear about the incredible work of OACS’s transnational grassroots partners, including our new partnership with Simon Bolivar Spanish School in Quito, to gain a greater understanding of the students’ roles within each organization and to learn about the ways in which our students plan to engage in similar justice-oriented issues locally. All are invited!

Students interested in applying for the 2018 OACS Global Programs are encouraged to attend
