11th Annual D80 Conference
The D80 Conference is a dialog and celebration of our efforts to solve issues that confront the world’s poorest 80%. The Michigan Tech campus hosts this annual conference in the fall every year to give a platform to the voices of university students serving communities in need, both domestically and abroad. Our conferences highlight service and research work done by students from Michigan Tech and elsewhere, and are open to anybody interested in development, design, and discovery for the poorest 80% of humanity. The public is always welcome.
The theme for the annual D80 Conference is Connect, Collaborate, Create! We are very excited to welcome Cathy Leslie, Executive Director of Engineers Without Borders-USA, as our featured keynote speaker.
The 2017 conference will be held Saturday, Oct. 14th in the U. J. Noblet Forestry Atrium. More information regarding the conference and registration can be found at mtu.edu/honors/D80/conference.
This year’s conference is sponsored by Michigan Tech’s D80 Center, the Sustainable Futures Institute, and the Pavlis Honors College.
