Global Issues Colloquium Schedule

This fall the Global Issues Colloquium will feature events to help raise world awareness on campus. The colloquiums first developed over a dozen years ago as a relatively informal attempt to broaden conversations about such matters. More recently, it has found a niche within the structure of the International Studies Program. Charged with “sustaining and enhancing an atmosphere in which global thinking becomes habitual,” the colloquiums aim to help the broader community understand the “strengths, beauties and core humanity of other cultures.”
