The Global Issues conference is an on-line conference focusing on original student research in the humanities, arts, and social sciences about issues of significance to our global community. Undergraduate and graduate students at GPE member institutions are invited to submit proposals to present their research that explores the interconnected nature of the global and local issues.

During the virtual conference there will be multiple thematic sessions with approximately three to four presentations from individuals in a diversity of countries.  Presentations are followed by moderated discussions that encourage the sharing of localized perspectives about the issues being presented.

All students, faculty, and staff at GPE Member institutions are welcome to attend the presentations and participate in the discussions that follow.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to find additional resources and submit your presentation proposal. Proposals due March 8, 2024.
