Global Studies Events
"An overarching theme throughout all of the events I attended this trimester seemed to be a call for love and compassion for all, and a plea for open dialogue and respect for all viewpoints." Sam V '18, Global Studies Diploma Student
The goal of the Global Studies Program is to develop active, engaged global citizens. To expose ourselves to new ideas and opinions, we host speakers at Watkinson School, Skype with experts around the world and travel to talks, plays, conferences and more.
