International Study Program - Community Colleges as sites of Global Citizenship

ISP 14

Abstract

Colleges and universities are vital institutions for addressing political, social, and economic concerns, be they at a local, national, or global level. While embedded in their communities, they contribute substantially to a nation's competitiveness and operate within an increasingly international environment that links people and institutions together across borders. Colleges and universities are arguably the most resilient and the most sustainable institutions not only for advancing modernization and prosperity but also for ensuring the foundation and continuance of civil society. As such, they are gateways into a future that is in our own hands.

The goal of the ISP Program for College Faculty and Administrators is to explore the factors that may either support or restrain a comprehensive approach to global education within community colleges and to jointly develop strategies for those teaching within community college systems on how they can incorporate a more comprehensive approach to global education.
