Global Citizenship & Diversity Learning Community

The Global Citizenship & Diversity learning community is an opportunity for students to discover and learn more about a variety of cultures, and engage in thoughtful conversations centered around current events and the effects of a globalized community.  This community will focus on building relationships across cultures through shared experiences and the exploration of diverse cultural perspectives.  Residential Living is excited to partner with International Programs to offer the GC&D learning community.

Here are some things to know about the community:

  • You will be living with students from many different countries and cultures
  • This community is housed in the Living Learning Center
  • Students will have opportunities for excursions that will explore exciting cultural festivals; local international markets; and iconic cultural sites around the area
  • Students will have regular opportunities to engage in critical conversation through programs that regularly feature different countries, and coffee talks that explore critical issues from different cultural lenses

 

As a part of the Global Citizenship & Diversity learning community, we hope students will:

  • Recognize individual and cultural differences and demonstrate an ability to communicate and interact effectively and respectfully across cultures
  • Use knowledge, diverse cultural frames of reference, and alternate perspectives to think critically and solve problems
  • Develop attitudes of empathy, solidarity, and respect for differences and diversity
