The job of saving the world is a big, serious task. But it needn’t be tackled without a little laughter, too.
So along with a lineup of speakers who run nonprofits that bring clean water, jobs and a helping hand to people near and far, Chapman University’s Global Citizens Leadership Summit on Saturday, Feb. 21, will include a keynote talk by comedian and culture critic
“We wanted a dynamic speaker who would bring name recognition for the current generation of undergraduate students and offer a unique way of talking about gender equity in our world,” says Justin Koppelman, assistant director of Student Civic Engagement. “Amanda’s presentation style will set an invigorating tone for the Global Citizens Leadership Summit.”
The goal of the leadership summit is to help students connect with civic engagement work already under way in the community or learn ways to launch their own, Koppelman says.
Also speaking will be
’14, founder of Wells for Wellbeing, which constructs wells and distributes water filters for villages throughout Cambodia, and
Department of Political Science
Professor Art Blaser, Ph.D., who has researched and written on human rights and disability issues. Several speakers representing local nonprofits will also be part of the program, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Attendance includes lunch and is free for Chapman students, but
is required so that enough meals can be planned.
