D80 Conference – October 13th

The D80 Conference is a dialog and celebration of our efforts to solve issues that confront the world’s poorest 80 percent. The Michigan Tech campus hosts this annual conference each fall 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 percent of humanity. The public is always welcome, but registration is required, so register today and let us know you’re coming.

We are very excited to welcome Erna Grasz, co-founder of the Asante Africa Foundation, as our featured keynote speaker.

The 2018 conference will be held Saturday (Oct. 13) in the Memorial Union Ballroom. More information regarding the conference and registration can be found online.

This year’s conference is sponsored by Michigan Tech’s D80 Center, the Sustainable Futures Institute, Pavlis Honors College and the Visiting Women and Minority Lecturer/Scholar Series (VWMLSS) which is funded by a grant to the Office of Institutional Equity from the State of Michigan’s King-Chavez-Parks Initiative.
