Are you passionate about a social change issue but unsure how to translate that passion into a research topic? Are you approaching your capstone without a clear topic in place? Or perhaps you would like to practice being more objective in your research and writing. CAEX 6100: Critical Thinking for Social Change is a new course launching for quarter students on February 26th.

A Social Change Challenge:
Water is Toxic, and Food is Scarce. What Will We Do?
A Virtual, Interdisciplinary Conference Series to Support Walden Scholar Practitioners in Their Collaboration for Positive Social Change
Conference Date: Friday, March 8, 2019
For this interdisciplinary virtual social change conference, we invite scholar-practitioners, social change advocates, community partners, and our students, staff and alumni to contribute to a broad-ranging, conference-structured dialog that explores both the direct and underlying causes that contribute to the ongoing food and water insecurities that exist globally, and in, ostensibly, the most advanced and wealthy nation in history.
We are particularly interested in a robust exploration of these social change challenges from a cross/multi-disciplinary perspective, where we can seek to understand how various disciplines and fields of practice and inquiry can work in synergy to address potential solutions to our negative food and water insecurity dynamic in the United States.
We look forward to receiving your submissions.
