– Global Interconnectedness: Achieving Sustainable Change in an Evolving World

11th Annual Global Well-Being and Social Change Conference

Within a Sustainable Development framework and embracing a human rights approach (Androff, 2016; Declaration of Human Rights, 1984), we at the Millersville University Learning Institute are dedicated to the interrogation of global social issues that violate or compromise individuals’ ability to live with the freedoms and protections to which they are entitled. The fundamental assumption embodied by human rights is that each person is a moral and rational being who deserves to be treated with dignity (United for Human Rights, 2017).

In collaboration with various Departments and Offices at Millersville University, The Learning Institute provides a platform from which experts from various disciplines share their knowledge and offer training for agents of social change. Each year, The Learning Institute hosts events that center on examining social, economic, and environmental injustices and human rights violations with intentional dialogue on ways to foster positive social change.

The Learning Institute’s 11th Annual Global Well-Being Conference will focus on using the social justice advocacy theoretical approach to enhance our global connectedness as we navigate an evolving world.

This year’s conference theme is Matters of Marginalization.

The conference events will be held March 15, 2024
