Beyond KU: Careers That Care

Having a career solving some of the biggest issues in the world is closer than you think. Join our Careers that Care panel discussion and informal Q & A networking session and learn how you can get involved in some of the most caring organizations in the world. Whether it’s helping low income students in the United States or teaching a small village how to farm new crops in Africa, Careers that Care can fuel your sense of adventure and spirit of philanthropy no matter your background.

Refreshments will be provided.
