Seven students will attend the University Scholars Leadership Symposium at the United Nations in Bangkok, Thailand this summer. Students will spend seven days with other youth leaders from around the world to hone their leadership skills, learn about what it takes for a humanitarian intervention to succeed, collaborate with their international peers on issues of social justice, and partake in a day of service in Bangkok.

With generous support from the College Dean’s Office, the Office of Global Engagement, and the Rochester Center for Community Leadership, Cazacu, Gonzalez, Leopold, Ngiaw, and Terrell were awarded funding to support their attendance through a competitive application process.  This is the first year that the University of Rochester has sent a delegation to the conference. Delegates will share their new knowledge and skills with the campus community in the fall semester. Visit the USLS website to learn more about the symposium.
