West Valley College celebrates third annual global citizenship conference

'Back in 1976 in an essay titled “An Attainable Global Perspective” Robert G. Hanvey, the “father” of modern global education, noted that there are five major components of a global education. For the third consecutive year, the WVC Global Citizenship Committee has aimed to help faculty and administrators to consider and apply those “attainable global perspectives” by organizing and delivering the Global Citizenship Conference. This year, the focus of the conference was “Confronting Urgent Issues” that result from globalization, among them the state of immigration policies and how it affects students in community colleges particularly in California.'
