Creating a Global Community

FIG Description:

It’s never been easier to connect with Dubai, Dakar or anywhere else in the world. You can wake up tomorrow morning in Jakarta or La Paz and/or stroll through numerous neighborhoods in the USA with street signs in: ภาษาไทย, ,ةةااللععررببيي , русский, and español. However, technology and travel are not substitutes for insight and understanding for how we, as a university community, thrive in a truly global century. How should we communicate effectively across cultures? How can we find common ground and yet communicate productively about global issues and dilemmas? In short, how can we cross borders, dismantle barriers, and build bridges in regard to global issues and dilemmas? If you are ready for an engaging, interactive, and challenging experience dedicated to the exploration of global issues, this FIG is waiting for you.
