The 2020-21 call for mini-grant proposals for the inaugural Campus Global Theme program is now open. UC Davis’ first Campus Global Theme: Food for Thought: Feeding Ourselves, Feeding the Planet, roots itself in the strengths of the institution to call for programs that can help our community reflect on the work of nourishing our world.
The University of California, Davis, has recently been accepted to join two United Nations (UN) networks: the UN Academic Impact (UNAI) and the U.S. Chapter of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN USA).
UC Davis is launching its first Campus Global Theme: “Food for Thought: Feeding Ourselves, Feeding the Planet.” This complex topic for the inaugural series of programs was chosen by the Global Education for All Steering Committee to advance global learning and UC Davis efforts towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by connecting the entire campus community to programming that is personally, academically and professionally significant.
With International Women’s Day being a time to reflect on progress made and to continue to call for change, while celebrating the courage and determination of women, some of UC Davis' 2018-19 UN Millennium Fellows and current Global Education for All Student Advisory Committee took the time to do just that.
Thanks to UC Davis’ selection as one of 30 campuses across the world to support Millennium Fellows through the 2018–19 academic year, 14 student leaders are gaining leadership training opportunities and direct experience in advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—a collection of 17 goals that address global challenges—on campus.
Millennium Fellows have been selected on just 30 campuses across 13 nations from every region of the globe. As fellows, UC Davis students receive training, recognition, and virtual linkage with fellows and universities around the world from August through November—in support of making the UN Sustainable Development Goals a reality.
