IDS Speakers Series
IDS at Saint Mary’s has one of the longest-running development studies speakers series in the country. The Speakers Series provides a forum for students to discuss central development issues with invited guests from academia, NGOs, multilateral agencies, government, and the private sector. Graduate students are required to participate and undergraduate students are encouraged to attend. The series is generally held on Fridays throughout the academic year from 12-1:30 pm, with alternatives dates as necessary.
