Spring 2014 Events

March 5, 2014: Food (In)security: Emerging Issues and Problems.

6:30 - 8:00pm,  in LANG 301, Gallery Theatre

The World Health Organization asserts, "the concept of food security is defined as including both physical and economic access to food that meets people's dietary needs as well as their food preferences." The access to healthy food is something that many take for granted, yet the reality is that people in the developing and developed worlds are increasingly finding their food security being altered as a result of economic, environmental, social and political changes. Please join a panel discussion composed of Bucknell faculty sharing their expert perspectives on this crucially important topic. || View the event poster.

Feb. 7, 2014 Alumni Career Panel

You are all invited to a luncheon where three recent Bucknell alumni (Maddie Boinville '09, Jennie Welch '11, and Andy Watts '13) will be discussing their current careers and the job search process. The event will take place Friday February 7th 12-1 in the Traditional Reading Room, Bertrand Library. It is never too early to start to consider these issues and this will be a great opportunity to get insight into what IR major's are doing and what they have done to be successful. I have attached a brief description of the three alums. So please take advantage of this opportunity to listen and meet these three alumni.
