Unleashing Human Potential

Global Citizens in Pursuit of the Common Good

A Human Development Conference at the University of Notre Dame


The Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies & Solidarity announces a student research conference on topics vital to human development to be held at the University of Notre Dame on February 11-12, 2011. This student-organized event is co-sponsored by the Center for Social Concerns at Notre Dame and SIT Study Abroad, a program of World Learning.

The conference is an opportunity to explore interdisciplinary, holistic approaches to improving livelihoods and advancing human dignity. As citizens of a globalized world, we have a responsibility to ensure that our actions will promote the common good.

All undergraduate and graduate students are invited to share their research experiences and discuss the current state of human development across a spectrum of topics.

To present a paper, submit an abstract using the attached form to hdc@nd.edu. Only proposals received by Monday, October 11 will receive consideration. Invitations for participation will be extended no later than Monday, November 20. Students who accept invitations to present at the conference will be responsible for securing funding for travel and other related expenses. More information will be available on our website: www.nd.edu/~hdc. We hope that you will be able to join us!
