What’s your passion? How do you make a difference in the world around you? How do you give back to the community? What can you do as a student? The symposia can help you answer that last one and maybe help you realize your passion and accomplish something real. Or at least get it started.

The symposia formats vary each semester, providing students with opportunities to meet professional role models and learn about ways they can reach out—for social justice, for environmental sustainability, and for community activism.

This semester’s Global Citizenship Student Symposium features two activities. On April 21, at 5:30 p.m. in Warmer Auditorim, the HPU Viewpoints Film Series will screen local film-maker Stephanie Castillo’s Simple Courage, an Emmy Award-winning documentary that examines the parallels between the handling of the leprosy epidemic in 19th century Hawai‘i and the AIDS/HIV epidemic around the globe today. The Student Symposium Keynote Speaker, Rebecca Schleifer, an attorney and an AIDS/HIV researcher for Human Rights Watch, will lead a discussion following the film.

On April 22, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the Hawai‘i Loa campus, HPU’s 6th Global Citizenship Student Symposium will feature Schleifer and other community and university professionals who will talk about their work and explain how students can build their own bridges in the world.

Interested? RSVP to studentlife@hpu.edu by April 14 and join other students, faculty, and professionals for breakfast and lunch (no charge to attendees) at the symposium.

Extra shuttles will run between downtown and Hawai‘i Loa campuses, and parking will be free.
