2018 Presidents United to Solve Hunger (PUSH) Leaders Forum

The PUSH Leaders Forum “Unlocking the Power of PUSH” will be held March 15-16, 2018 at the I Hotel in Champaign, Illinois. This workshop is as a high-level pre-conference, extending over two half-days leading up to the 14th Annual Universities Fighting World Hunger Summit. This is a critical meeting of administrators and representatives from universities across the world, including President Killeen, having discussions on the work being done and future directions of PUSH.  Students are strongly encouraged to attend the Fight World Hunger Summit.

Additionally, the PUSH Leaders Forum provides an opportunity to:

  • learn about leading-edge food and nutrition security initiatives from distinguished speakers, with implications for collective action
  • share information about the food and nutrition security work that is being carried out on your respective campuses
  • network with other PUSH colleagues at a reception and dinner hosted by University of Illinois System

The conference will wrap up with a joint workshop with the attendees for UFWH about design-thinking, where we will discuss using the creative strategies designers use to apply to solving world problems such as hunger.
