The Millennium Campus Network (MCN) is a national non-profit network of university student organizations working to end extreme poverty and achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The world needs leadership, global citizenship, and collaboration. Our Generation answers this call.
The Millennium Campus Network is transforming the future of global development practice by identifying and supporting key student leaders to:
1) re-think the paradigms that perpetuate inequality, including connecting how our social identities affect our work and including challenging all sectors in their effect on poverty
2) promote a human-centered and collaborative approach to global development based on authentic and community-led partnerships
3) transform dialogue into action by presenting opportunities to act, challenging youth towards advocacy, and celebrating concrete action.
Our Annual Conference, Global Campaigns, and Millennium Fellowship convene university students worldwide to become the people the world needs.
MCN Fellows work to build their campus based organizations by working together, leveraging resources, connecting with experts in the field, and creating a community to share experiences and best practices.
Each year the MCN's Millennium Campus Conference (MCC) brings together more than 1,000 student leaders to network, learn from dozens of leading advocates, experts, and professionals, and re-affirm their generation's commitment to sustainable development. MCN Advisors, including Dr. Paul Farmer, Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, and John Legend have all addressed students at past MCCs.
By becoming more effective and sustainable in their work, MCN Member Organizations are working towards a world where the world's most deprived communities have lifted themselves out of extreme poverty--permanently--with the help of a united, effective, and informed community of university students and alumni.
MCN programs are made possible thanks to its many committed sponsors and partners, including: The Jenzabar Foundation, Hewlett-Packard, The UN Foundation, Better World Campaign, The Boston Globe, and Glamour.
