Development: What does it MEAN?

Welcome back to QPID!

Hope you had a great summer and were able to come to our first QPID Forum (general info session) this week. This was a short Forum where we touched on the question "What is development?" Is development building new infrastructure or establishing a democratic political system? Is it clean water? Affordable housing? Education? Medical care? Business? Are some forms of development more effective than others? What does development mean to you?

We'll explore this question in more detail at 5:30pm on Tuesday in Ellis 226. Bring your friends, your thinking caps, and an open mind.
