Interested students are encouraged to attend to learn more about available graduate programs, internships/co-ops, and full/part-time seasonal employment. Career fairs offer students an opportunity to practice professionalism in the business environment as well as opportunities for career development.

When the framers of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights penned the first draft directly after World War II, the definition of peace took on new meaning. Global peace was defined in the most basic and general of ways—a way that allowed the western world to breathe collective sighs of relief from totalitarian barbarism and expansionism.

It’s safe to say that the authors, such as Eleanor Roosevelt, could not have envisioned how the meaning of peace would evolve—or how oppressive forces would find other, more insidious ways to seep into our world in the form of civil rights abuses, the privatization of war, or Internet security breaches. Sixty-three years later, there is a new peace declaration germinating at the United Nations (UN)—and Marygrove is taking an active part in its birth.
