Wheaton College Symposium in Human Needs and Global Resources


In 2005 Wheaton College received a generous endowment to hold an annual Symposium in Human Needs and Global Resources (HNGR). The intent of the grant is to advance the critical thinking needed to address world hunger through agricultural and economic development. This will be accomplished by engaging faculty and students in strategically thinking through the theoretical and practical challenges of global economic, social, and political development, including themes in both rural and urban contexts, relating to world hunger, food production, agriculture, water resources, urbanization, environment, health and conflict.
