UN Activities

UN Pathways Lecture Series

Every semester a number of United Nations ambassadors and delegates visit our campuses to speak about a range of topics specific to the region they come from, the work of the United Nations, current events, and issues of global significance. Students are encouraged to attend and may view the Current Schedule in the UN Pathways section. Those students conducting research on countries and topics covered in the series may be interested in the lectures as reseach material. The lectures are taped and available to the campus community at no cost. To order taped material, click here .

Video Conferences

In addition to the onsite lectures, students are able to participate in interactive video conferences with the UN every semester. Video conferences feature several ambassadors, delegates and academics debating current global issues, followed by a question and answer session allowing students an opportunity to interact one on one with presenterd. Live video feed from the United Nations is broadcast to both of the Fairleigh Dickinson University campuses and well as other universities. The Current Semester is available in the UN Pathways section.
