What's Your Worldview?
5th ANNUAL STUDENT FORUM ON GLOBAL LEARNING
The Student Forum on Global Learning provides Dartmouth students with a channel for expression of and reflection on cross-cultural experiences, including but not limited to global and domestic internships, fellowships, research, service trips, and study abroad programs. Dartmouth undergraduate, graduate and professional students discuss and present on topics that delve into the complexities of our shared humanity. Our theme this year is “a time for positive and vigorous action." It is our utmost hope that community members, students, faculty and staff through this forum as well as Martin Luther King Day activities will feel inspired to pursue a greater knowledge and understanding of current global issues. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.”
Please join us on January 20, 2014 in this celebration of global learning! We hope that these presentations encourage and inspire you to become an agent of change in your own environment, that you leave our forum motivated, challenged, and better prepared to actualize your cross-cultural learning objectives.
