“Go Global, Live Local” is an interactive course that provides students the opportunity to explore contemporary global issues.
Through guidance and facilitation, students learn about community based projects, locally and/or globally and apply their findings to help better understand and analyze global concerns and challenges. Local or international projects may focus on, but are not limited to, areas of health care, education, culture, social and community development. This course encourages its participants to become an active part of a spirited team which strives to understand real world problems and make a positive difference in their own lives and in those of others.
