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.
