Past Conferences

The annual Global Issues Conference provides an opportunity for students to share their research and ideas. In line with De Anza’s institutional core competencies, the conference is an opportunity for students to recognize their role as local, national and global citizens.

It is our hope that the workshops in the conference present an opportunity to participate in the democratic process, practice respect for social and cultural diversity, appreciate the complexity of the physical world, and understand the significance of environmental sustainability
