World Ed Talks​

Global Citizenship through Community Engagement

 Date: Wednesday, October 21st

Time: 7:00 PM 

Where: Park Library Auditorium 

How can we learn from communities around the     world and be a part of them?  Becoming a global    citizen starts with building meaningful cross-cultural relationships.  By taking advantage of opportunities     to live in communities around the world, even for ​     ​brief periods of time, we can better see and    understand social inequalities and be inspired by people who are addressing these challenges in   creative ways. 

Speaker:  Dr. Laura Cochrane

Dr. Laura Cochrane is an Anthropology Faculty member and Director of the Cultural and Global Studies Program.  Dr. Cochrane has done extensive research in Senegal with local communities and led a student gro​up to Senegal this summer to live in a small rural village and engage with the community.
