Is your campus on the new frontier of global engagement?
College campuses provide students with numerous opportunities to engage with other cultures and develop global awareness through study abroad programs, cultural activities, and a diverse student body.
Yet, colleges and universities across the country often struggle to connect students to these resources, and students sometimes fail to develop their skills as global citizens. Departments and programs are often siloed from one another, making it difficult to unite global initiatives under a common framework. Student interactions can be similarly isolated, as busy students naturally gravitate toward friends from their own country or region of the world rather than connecting with peers from different backgrounds in purposeful ways.
With the right support, college students can effectively foster global understanding. The Center for Citizen Diplomacy offers training modules that enable students to develop global competency and leadership skills. The Center also offers customized professional development seminars for faculty and staff interested in leveraging the concepts of citizen diplomacy in their existing campus programming.
