Get Ahead By Going Abroad: The Importance of being a Global Citizen in the 21st Century Workforce

Get Ahead By Going Abroad: The Importance of being a Global Citizen in the 21st Century Workforce – Thursday, Oct. 22 at 2:00 p.m. in the Chapel

Students often hear claims that an off-campus experience (like an internship or study abroad) is life changing, transformational, and all around good for you and your resume. But why is this? Who decided that being a global citizen is important? Stacie Berdan, a world-wide leader and expert in Global Education, will be on campus presenting on this very topic.

Stacie will focus on how going global is a mindset, why today’s workers need global skills to compete, whether at home or abroad, and the steps students can take to become a global thinker. She will tie in how international/off campus experiences can help students grow in self-awareness, which can propel them forward in their pursuit of meaningful work, and emphasize the idea that gaining global skills/mindset is an important part of college, regardless of major.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend this interactive and fun presentation.
