The Cooper Union Global Forum seminar invites students to explore some of the pressing global challenges of our time, with a focus on the developing world. The course is developed and taught by President Jamshed Bharucha, who aims to have students consider such questions as: How should we strive to alleviate poverty? How should we educate vast populations for a rapidly changing global economy? How should the United States and the West respond to competition from Asia and security threats stemming from global disparities, historical grievances and nationalist movements?
During the fall 2012 semester, a variety of guest speakers were invited to speak with the students in the seminar. Students were invited to respond to each of the speakers. We have posted some highlights on this site.
