What's Your Worldview?

The Student Forum on Global Learning provides students with a channel for expression on the complexities of our shared humanity.  The theme this year is Develop A World Perspective. "If we are to have peace on earth . . .  Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective." Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "A Christmas Sermon on Peace" 1967

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 2016 Forum will take place on Monday, January 18th.
