Global Citizenship

The 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.

Community members will have the opportunity to learn and engage through a variety of programs, workshops and activities that are intentionally designed to challenge, encourage growth, and build community across differences. You will have opportunities to critically assess and reflect on global citizenship, your own cultural and self-awareness, develop intercultural communication skills, and explore learnings related to equity, diversity and inclusion.
