          About This Event

          Summary

          From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising spotlights the unforgettable stories of nine girls living in the developing world and overcoming nearly insurmountable odds to achieve their dreams. The film gives voice to the girls’ stories and this powerful truth: educating girls can transform families, communities, countries and eventually, the world.

           

          Following the film, we will have a panel discussion with campus experts in global health, international education and philanthropy. Our panelists are:
