3rd Annual Global Well-Being Conference

Global Poverty: Human Needs, Economic Justice, and Social Change

June 8-10, 2016

Millersville University of Pennsylvania

Millersville University School of Social Work's Learning Institute is dedicated to investigating global social issues.  The Learning Institute provides a platform from which experts share their knowledge and offer training for agents of social change.  Each year, The Learning Institute hosts events that center on a particular theme reflected in the Learning Institute's literature, roster of speakers, and annual conference. For the 2015-2016 academic year, the Learning Institute is focused on poverty and human needs.  Poverty is among the greatest social issues we face today; its effects are pervasive and profound.  Poverty crosses boundaries of race, culture, and status and its consequences are of serious concern to the student, practitioner, and seeker of social change.  Poverty disproportionately affects people of color and the effects of living in poverty can be devastating for both adults and children (Iceland, 2013).
