Faculty & Administrators

2018 Global Citizenship Seminars

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. The seminars for faculty and administrators 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.

GCS 17: July 14 to 21, 2018

Potsdam, Germany

I’m still overwhelmed by all the feedback, and still so happy to have represented my Fall class of 2017 at UH Manoa."

"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
