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.
“I am extremely excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship and lead as a Campus Co-Director. I believe this program will make a social impact and be a guide for students in their future social endeavors.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
Through Becker College One Health, Jessica aims to work with the Veterinary Science and Nursing students to create a collaboration to promote One Health and to move forward this idea with both groups on a mission trip to an underprivileged country. One Health recognizes that the health of people is connected to the health of animals and the environment. The CDC describes One Health as a “collaborative, multisectoral, and trans-disciplinary approach—working at the local, regional, national, and global levels—with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment.”
