"A Call to Action: Future Challenges for a New Puerto Rico" unites experts in dialogue and conversation around the current state of affairs in Puerto Rico and the future challenges and opportunities in rebuilding the island following the devastation of Hurricane Maria in September 2017.

Researchers and policymakers will present on how to improve Puerto Rico’s workforce and industrial base, alleviate the debt obligations, reform Puerto Rico’s political and legal relationship with the United States government, and build partnerships between universities and NGOs as anchor institutions.

This symposium calls the community to action to learn how to support and sustain Puerto Rico at this momentous period in the island’s history.
