There’s a lot of responsibility that comes with being one of the few universities in the world to be granted Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status at the United Nations. There’s also a lot of pride that comes with it. NGOs work with the U.N. to establish dialogue and policy essential to various issues of global importance. From human rights to health, from economic development to education, the work we do with the U.N embodies our tireless dedication to service and compassion in the Franciscan spirit.
This distinguishing status with the U.N. gives Felician students a unique opportunity to participate in our U.N. Fellowship Program, gaining unprecedented access to attend U.N. conferences and meet politicians, diplomats and ambassadors from around the world. The students who have participated in the U.N. fellowship program are as varied and diverse as the U.N. itself, with past participants representing seven different nations from around the globe, including Poland, Russia, Denmark, Korea, Bosnia, Japan and the United States.
No matter the major or background, Felician students are continually strengthened through our commitment to the U.N and our common goal of making the world a better place.
