Dr. Mehta talks about the mission of HESE, which is to bring together students and faculty from a variety of disciplines to develop, design, and implement humanitarian projects in the developing world. The group discusses recent HESE projects that focus on the development of technology-based solutions to problems facing developing countries. HESE teams transform these solutions into sustainable and scalable ventures that enable positive social change. Projects have taken HESE teams of students and faculty to Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and many other parts of the world.
Dr. Mehta also talks about the opportunities of the HESE program for Liberal Arts students, who bring a valuable perspective and skill set to the HESE teams. For more information about the program and its course offerings, please visit the HESE website.
