Awareness – Commitment – Engagement
How can you get involved?
Students can get involved in our “Students for Global Citizenship” club. Faculty and staff can get involved in meaningful discussions on global issues with students in class, at student club meetings and, of course, in private or group conversations. All of us can become active in community service projects and organizations, aiding an existing non-profit with its mission. We can engage in experiential learning, and a host of other means.
Where can I get information?
The Global Citizenship Council (BCC volunteers) has put together resources for faculty, staff, and students. These resources can help faculty and staff engage in meaningful discussions about global issues, with students, and with the larger BCC community. These resources can also aid students as they strive to become global citizens, seeking ways to be actively involved in the issues that face the world today.
