ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
“It is the chance grow a network of peers serving as friends, colleagues and mentors simultaneously. Furthermore, it is a network of individuals whose life experiences differ vastly from my own, drawing from a variety of disciplines, but also cultures that span the globe. This diversity of perspectives is something I believe to be an imperative aspect of action on Climate Change. Very simply, participation in the Millennium Fellowship confers both experience and preliminary expertise in the process of working towards a better world in an age of exponential complexity. As I look forward to a career in tackling Climate Change and its diversity of adverse effects on human well-being, this kind of experience would be invaluable.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Core Pathways Initiative, for which Jamie is a Project Associate, centers the traditional collection of courses in Georgetown’s Core Curriculum around a complex global challenge such as Climate Change, placing emphasis on community, interdisciplinarity, and experiential learning. The initiative’s goal is to empower students with a multidisciplinary knowledge with one of the major issues facing our world today so that they are best equipped to tackle as they go out into the world as change-makers.
Jamie is a rising senior at Georgetown University studying Environmental Biology with a minor in Justice & Peace Studies. She is passionate about the ways in which changes in the environment are so intimately tied to human life (and vice versa), specifically as it relates to gender issues and sustainable consumerism (or lack thereof).
