2018 Global Citizenship Seminars

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.
