Two student clubs, the African Nations Club and the Mixtape Exchange Club, organized and hosted a one-day Global Solutions Arts and Music Festival on May 6th, a "coalition of the arts, music, and human ingenuity."
 

International trade and economic diplomacy student Richard Nworah MAITED '19, international environmental policy student Kyle Burnett MAIEP '19, along with joint degree MBA and international policy and development student Airon Whitt MBA/MAIPD '19 led the initiative which brought together local artists of all ages as well as innovators. The idea behind the festival was to explore the themes of environmental conservation, ethical consumerism, non-proliferation and terrorism, and the individual identity crisis problem.
