International Development Working Group

The “International Development Working Group” is a collection of faculty, staff and students who share an interest in international development.  Meetings of the group provides an informal venue to share news and information about projects in progress, issues of shared interest, and opportunities on the horizon. It is a chance to brainstorm about projects and proposals, and simply meet and connect with others who share an interest in international development topics.  Anyone is welcome to attend. Feel free to bring your own lunch and IPIA will furnish coffee and dessert.  Past presentations are hyperlinked below. To be added to the email distribution list for the group, contact an individual listed at the bottom of this page.
