UVU Students Report on their UN Parallel Event Experience

On April 14 at 12:00pm, students from the Utah International Mountain Forum (UIMF), a coalition of student clubs at UVU, presented their impressions and achievements gained from hosting a parallel event at the recent United Nations 65th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW65). Their UN presentation was titled, “Mountain Women Empowerment Through The Inclusive Student Engaged Learning Model.” The Student Engaged Learning (SEL) approach encourages students to gain professional skills while addressing real-world issues on the local and international levels with university faculty serving as mentors.
