If your college or university is interested in participating in a Global Citizenship Seminar (GCS), please write to or Astrid Schroeder for more information.


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.
