Fall Schedule - 2013

Raj Shah and Sen. Graham at Clemson
Clemson PSA

USAID has a long tradition of engagement with universities, colleges, research institutes and other institutes of higher education. As part of an effort to expand this tradition, USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah is visiting universities and attending events across the country to discuss solutions to the biggest challenges in international development with students, researchers, faculty and their partners.

We invite you to join the conversation and contribute your innovative ideas, whether you’re able to be there in person or to participate through our forums on this website, Facebook and Twitter. If your university would like to request a USAID expert to visit your students in-person or virtually, please contact rgharib@usaid.gov.

Check back often for updates, as we’ll be adding to this schedule regularly!
