The University of Notre Dame’s HDC is a student-led conference that brings together undergraduate and graduate students to present their research related to issues of international development. This 8th Annual HDC is entitled “Re-Imagining Development: Pursuing Good in a Changing World.” Featuring keynote speaker Reverend Adam Russell Taylor from the World Bank, this year’s conference provides a platform for dialogue in which students from around the world can engage in conversations regarding past trends in development, current best practices, and the future of development in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals adopted this year.

The HDC is sponsored by The Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity at the University of Notre Dame and cosponsored by the Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame and SIT Study Abroad, a program of World Learning.
