Ash Center Student Speaker Series

This week's Student Speaker Series will take a close look at how innovation and technology can reach rural or impoverished communities. Taking a step beyond just broadband access, we'll explore what the tangible resources that access can bring to a community; from online education to vocation and tutorial content, rural connectivity is a tool to impact people's lives for the better.
 

Speakers:

Sukhman Randhawa, MC-Mason '17

About the Series

The Ash Center Student Speaker Series highlights and explores the implications and lessons learned from the research projects or applied learning experiences of Harvard University students supported by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. Each week, we invite two students to offer brief remarks on their work, or a response to one another’s work, and then open the table for discussion. The series will take place each Friday at noon in the Ash Center foyer, 124 Mount Auburn Street, Suite 200-North. Lunch will be provided.
