‘How Change Happens’ with Duncan Green 

On Nov. 1, 2017, author Duncan Green engaged UCLA Luskin students in a conversation about how power and systems shape change around the world as outlined in his new book, “How Change Happens.” In the presentation, he discussed various types of power that create a global impact. Students gained insight on practical ways they can prepare to make influential change in the world. Green encouraged their curiosity, which is the engine for change.

2017-2018 Student Orientation 

Global Public Affairs @ Luskin hosted its first event —  student orientation. With much interest in the global perspective, both second-year and first-year students of the Luskin School crowded the room. Professor Steve Commins, one of two directors of GPA, introduced the program and invited multiple student speakers to share their experiences as certificate students and summer fellows. Attendees learned how to become involved in global conversations with yearlong Salon Sessions, guest speakers, and more. You can find more information about GPA@ Luskin on our website or by meeting one of the project managers during their office hours (Thursdays 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM in PAB 3357J).
