What's Your Worldview?
The Student Forum on Global Learning provides students with a channel for expression on the comlexities of our shared humanity. As Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, "People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other."
We offer the Student Forum each year on MLK Day to celebrate cross-cultural learning and share challenges, lessons learned, and hopes for the future of our increasingly connected global community. The 2015 Forum will take place on Monday, January 19th.
