    Untangling the Knot: Pacific Rim Environment, Health and Inequality Challenges

     About the program:

    The University of Oregon's (UO) Division of Undergraduate Studies (UGS) in collaboration with the Office of International Affairs (OIA) will host the Association of Pacific Rim Universities' (APRU) 2019 Undergraduate Leadership Program from July 1 - 12, 2019 in Eugene, Oregon.

    For the 2019 Undergraduate Leadership Program, “Untangling the Knot: Pacific Rim Environment, Health and Inequality Challenges” students from the Pacific Rim will come to the environmentally-focused state of Oregon to apply new thinking to untangle three intertwined social dilemmas: environmental degradation, public health risks and social inequality. Students will work in small teams to address a real-world issue in one of these areas (e.g., environment), while working through how the challenge is entangled with the other two areas (health and social inequality). Representatives from locally based community organizations working on these issues will develop challenges for the teams and at the end of the program, will pick the best student group solutions.

    The 12-day program will combine high impact educational practices including research and community-based learning with intensive leadership development and the application of scientific knowledge to societal dilemmas. Students will engage in skills development workshops in areas such as team building, science communication and non-profit management.  They will attend leadership lectures, interact with faculty experts, experience organized excursions and cultural activities and develop real world action plans for solving these pressing social dilemmas.

    Students will work in small teams to address a real-world issue in one of these areas (e.g., environment), while working through how the challenge is entangled with the other two areas (health and social inequality). Representatives from locally-based community organizations working on these issues will develop challenges for the teams and at the end of the program will pick the best student group solutions.
