The Global to Local Speaker Series are monthly presentations that highlight issues of global and local importance.
The Global to Local Speaker Series are one-hour presentations facilitated by an expert on a specific topic that has both global context and local relevance. These presentations provide an opportunity for students and staff to learn about international issues and how they can be understood through a social work lens.
The series aims to raise awareness of global issues among both students and the school as a whole. Past presentations subject include refugee trauma and torture, HIV prevention in Haiti, the Black Lives Matter movement, the Burmese community in Buffalo and Migrant Workers in Upstate New York.
The monthly presentations take place via Zoom and are open to students, staff and community members.
