Global Citizenship

The Engaged Global Citizenship Community brings together students who are excited to build authentic relationships across cultures where they will be given the opportunity to broaden their perspectives and networks and engage in issues facing our world.

This community participates in a series of workshops and activities designed by SFU’s International Services for Students office in conjunction with Fraser International College (FIC). They help develop intercultural communication skills while also creating opportunities for you to critically assess and reflect on global citizenship, your own cultural and self-awareness and explore perspectives on diversity and inclusion.

Highlights

  • Students who participate in the Engaged Global Citizenship LLC will receive credit on their co-curricular record
