International Study Program - Community Colleges as sites of Global Citizenship

ISP 04

Abstract

In an age of new international tensions and shifting global alliances, the need for

Americans to understand international affairs, to recognize cultural values other than their

own, and to view world events from a variety of perspectives, has become increasingly

critical.

 

In response to this need, the Salzburg Seminar has developed the International

Study Program (ISP). The purpose of the program is to provide an intensive seven-day

international experience for students, faculty and administrators of U.S. colleges and universities to explore pressing issues of global concern and to view such issues from a perspective outside the United States. Students will acquire the knowledge and skills to better understand and interpret the international political order, the global economy, and worldwide social developments. It is intended that this program will make students more aware of global issues and of what it means to be a "global citizen", more discerning in their assessment of

information pertaining to world affairs, and more understanding of America's place in the

world as well as of non-Americans' perceptions of the US.

 

The July 17-24, 2003 ISP session is offered to faculty and administrators of U.S. community colleges.
