Jesuit Universities Humanitarian Action Network
A cornerstone of JUHAN is its biennial workshop for undergraduate students from the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States as well as Jesuit universities around the world. The conferences are intensive immersion programs that orient students and faculty to all facets of humanitarian emergencies. In June 2008, Fordham University hosted the first conference on "Engaging Students in Humanitarian Actions." The second JUHAN National Conference was held at Georgetown University in June 2010 on "The Ethics of Humanitarian Action." Fairfield University hosted the third biennial JUHAN leadership conference in June 2012 on "Global Perspectives on Humanitarian Action".

Comment from student, Gaelle Isazu, "I enjoyed going to the discussions. They were very informative, inspiring and eye opening. Seeing other students like me from across the country and the world, fighting for the same issues and more that I have just been exposed to, lets me know that I am not alone in my dream to change the world."
