Field Trips and Events

Student members, alumni, and advisers have the opportunity to attend various summit events that are organized to speak with influential individuals from leading organizations throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world.
 
Our goal is to engage in meaningful conversations with community leaders, business executives, entrepreneurs, governmental officials, and journalists on a wide array of topics. These conversations are designed to provide access to and an even greater understanding of the diversity that guides millennial and GenZ thinking.
 
Furthermore, we strive to make a positive impact wherever we travel.   During our trips, we produced a white paper on opioid abuse (which was presented to the White House), and also created video content covering heart-healthy choices, the impact of cyberbullying, advice for employers, and the best ways to invite dialogue, foster understanding, and engage in civil discourse.
