Global Citizenship Education and Local Community Connections: Faculty Perspectives

Thursday, June 1
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
LACC, Room 410

This session presents findings from a liberal arts college case study that examined faculty understanding of global citizenship. The study identified faculty concerns about student learning becoming a kind of “rootless cosmopolitanism,” and argues for students learning the importance of local community connections, even while becoming global citizens.
