Universities play a very important role in helping developing countries improve the lives of their citizens. It educates the experts and professionals about what poor countries need for their development. Liberia, for example, has 4 million people and only 60 doctors. Steven Davis, the Executive Director of Academics Without Borders (AWB), a Canadian NGO based in Montreal, will talk about how AWB helps universities in the developing world build capacity in teaching, research and operations. Please join us to learn about AWB and how you, as a faculty member, a member of the staff or an administrator, can get involved in AWB's important work in the developing world.
