Global Citizenship Seminars for Faculty & Administrators

GCP71_fac_sessionThe seminars for faculty, administrators, and staff focus primarily on supporting partner institutions as they develop strategies and programs to make education for responsible global citizenship the converging point in their students’s quest for knowledge and identity. This requires higher education institutions to determine what students need to know (regardless of the discipline they study) in order to lead productive and rewarding lives as future professionals and as active citizens within an increasingly interdependent world struggling for balance. To meet this challenge, our seminars provide a space for members of college and university communities to reflect on their overarching missions and develop innovative ways to re-orient their teaching and research.

Including the broad concepts of global citizenship and engagement into the institutional fabric of the specific institutions requires a long-term institutional commitment. Starting and sustaining this type of work also requires the engagement and support of a dedicated group of critical stakeholders composed of the faculty, staff, and administrators. Our seminars often serve as the catalyst for establishing, maintaining and expanding such dedicated groups.

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."

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
