Global awareness and social responsibility involves interacting with those who are different from you. Whether you are fortunate enough to study abroad, support a local mission, or attend a training session on inclusivity, you are learning to understand and appreciate diversity. Diversity could include race, age, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and socio- economic status. Having gained this deeper understanding of others, you’ll be better prepared to interact with all walks of life as well as recognize local and global issues.
Examples of Global Awareness and Social Responsibility:
- Study abroad
- Community service
- Mission trips
- Complete approved courses (e.g., Philosophy of Women, Introduction to World Art, Global Voices, World Religions)
- Spend time with the Sisters at Mt. Carmel
- Engage at the Multicultural Center
