2016 Global Citizenship Seminars for Students

The student seminars focus on a similar mix of substantive topics in a variety of instructional formats, including experiential learning during a field trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site in neighboring Germany. These seminars also include intensive small group project work designed to develop the habits of the mind and the heart to think critically and strategically about how students can act as global citizens on their campuses, in their communities, and in their future educational and professional careers.

2016 Global Citizenship Seminars for Faculty & Administrators

Our goal is to transform colleges and universities into “sites of global citizenship” where all activities – from student to faculty learning, teaching, and research, to institutional policies, structures and infrastructures – are oriented towards preparing graduates to be responsible global citizens. These seminars examine a diverse set of substantive topics, explore strategies for institutional change, and create a framework for participating institutional teams to design global education initiatives and implementation plans specific to their own institutions.

Alliance Alumna Gives Commencement Speech at University of Hawai'i

In 2014 Annabelle Le Jeune came to our Program as a participant with a group of 50 Miami Dade College students. Last year, she returned to work with us as an Intern on our student programs. It truly was a pleasure to welcome her back. Here's what she said about her commencement speech:" "It took nearly 24 years, but at the end of 2017 I finally weaved my own story together and shared it in front of thousands of people—something I’ve never done before. I was nervous, I was excited, and most of all, honored. This 7-minute speech was composed of lifelong confusion, challenges, worldly opportunities, and the little things. If you know you know. I’m still overwhelmed by all the feedback, and still so happy to have represented my Fall class of 2017 at UH Manoa." https://www.facebook.com/AnnabelleLeJeune/videos/10212512409818152/?viewas=100000686899395&privacy_source=timeline_gear_menu

How Tough Is It to Change a Culture of Harassment? Ask Women at Ford

"In recent months, as women have spoken out about harassment - at media companies and technology start-ups, in the entertainment industry and on Capital Hill - they have spurred quick action, with accused men toppling from lofty positions, corporations pledging change and lawmakers promising new protections. But much less attention has been focused on the plight of blue-collar workers, like those on Ford's factory floors. After the #MeToo movement opened a global floodgate of accounts of mistreatment, a former Chicago worker proposed a new campaign: "#WhatAboutUs." NY Times
