At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

2010 Exploring Medical Missions Conference

Often, many people groups are forgotten until something like a major disaster gets the world's attention. Overlooked by the majority and left behind in the dash for progress, these silent persons piece together lives from the leftovers, as they succumb the physical and mental repercussions of neglect.

Conference speakers include experienced medical missionaries and international medicine experts. For a list of speaker information, click here.
