Global Citizenship

The UConn Academic Plan emphasizes the need " prepare our students for work and personal success as participants in an internationalized economy and an increasingly diverse society."


"The idea behind preparing our students for global citizenship is on one hand to help them prepare for careers in the global marketplace/world and on the other hand to help them become reflective, concerned, contributing members of the global community." [Global Learning Outcomes, Global Citizenship Curriculum Committee, 2009]
