On-campus resources

According to GCP participants, the following campus programs, events and student groups contribute to their education as global citizens. Students report that through participation in these activities, they gain understanding of world issues and events. They develop knowledge of local and global issues including the issues of human security, refugees, health, human rights, social justice, and indigenous people. They are involved in projects contributing to the welfare of the local and international community and enjoy interaction with people from diverse backgrounds. These activities also help students learn to better understand themselves and believe they can make a difference in the lives of others and in the world. Take advantage of the many opportunities offered on campus!
