Meet the students who made UC Berkeley's "Global Poverty & Practice" program the fastest-growing minor on campus. Chosen by about 300 students from a wide range of disciplines, the program teaches about the problem of poverty and sends students into the field to carry out their own projects to alleviate poverty in the world. Enrollment in the program's introductory course shot up from 200 students when it was introduced in 2007, to a capacity enrollment of 724 this semester. Offered by the Blum Center for Developing Economies, the Global Poverty and Practice minor now has students serving in more than 30 different countries. (#19839)
