Event Details


Walsh University's 
Office of Global Learning and Office of Service Learning

in conjuction with
Ohio Campus Compact  

Invite university administrators, faculty, and students to join with community partners and the general public in a dialogue to address issues of hunger in our local and global communities. The goal of this dialogue will be to seek solutions to domestic and global hunger through the teaching, research, and service activities of Ohio’s colleges and universities. Based on the models of dialogues already held in Kansas and North Carolina, Ohio will be the third state to host a state-wide meeting of higher educators devoted to seeking hunger solutions.

Featuring Keynote Speaker Ambassador Tony P. Hall
Executive Director, the Alliance to End Hunger
Three-Time Nobel Peace Price Nominee 

  A native of Dayton, Ambassador Tony Hall served Ohio for more than 20 years as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Ohio’s 3rd District. He then served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Missions on Food and Agriculture and is now the Executive Director of the Alliance to End Hunger, a policy and advocacy group based in Washington DC.
