Who’s Developing Whom? 
Achieving Millennium Development Goals through
International Service-Learning

The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – which range from halving extreme poverty to forming ethical partnerships for development, form a blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. The goals have galvanized unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s most vulnerable.
This year’s symposium, “Who's Developing Whom,” is intended to strengthen our commitment to a core purpose: to engage students, community-based organizations and institutions in creating partnerships based on inclusion, social and economic justice, and service to others. We invite you to join us as we celebrate over thirty years of working to develop the student as a person while simultaneously improving the lives of others around the world.
