The Global Engagement Summit (GES) is a student-led initiative of Northeastern University designed to build the capacity of the next generation of change-makers. By identifying talented, young individuals, providing skills training and connecting driven students with innovative thought leaders, GES empowers them to produce responsible and sustainable solutions to shared global problems.
Since 2006, more than 700 delegates from universities across the globe have participated in GES. Delegates present a community development project or social entrepreneurship venture that they want to advance to the next stage. During a week of capacity-building workshops, critical discussions, and networking sessions, students work to improve their projects and learn skills that will serve them throughout their career.

Note: GES participants would be eligible to apply for a Patricelli Center Enrichment Grant to cover a portion of the travel and summit costs.
