This is the third year of the Student Forum on Global Learning. It is a collaborative venture between many campus centers to support Dartmouth students in presenting their experiences, research and learning on global issues. The forum is held on MLK day, January 16 2012. An administrator and faculty member is willing to help you prepare for your presentation. Presentations can be in various formats. The short abstract however is due Oct. 19. I am writing to you because I know you have great material to share with other students! The forum is a wonderful event that includes a major public speaker and networking opportunities as well as student presenations. Most presentations are 30-45 minutes and if you work with another student you may also do a panel presentation. Sessions can also be created that are interactive or workshop style. At the end of this email there is the website portal for the conference.
Have you had a meaningful cross-cultural experience that made you:
<>re-examine your world view?
<>helped you see first-hand the interconnectedness of global issues?
<>allowed you to engage in solutions to societal problems?
<>forced you to question your ability to bring about social, political, or
economic change?
2012 STUDENT FORUM ON GLOBAL LEARNING is part of the MLK Day celebrations
and is a collaborative effort by the Dickey Center, Office of Institutional
Diversity & Equity, Tucker Foundation, Rockefeller Center, Office of
Undergraduate Advising & Research, Off-Campus Programs, Office of Pluralism
& Leadership, and the Dartmouth College-American University of Kuwait
Dartmouth students have the unique opportunity and the significant
responsibility to share what they have learned with others. The Student
Forum on Global Learning engages Dartmouth students with some of the most
pressing issues of our time. Participants will explore the
interconnectedness of global issues, societal problems, potential solutions,
and their role and responsibility in helping effect change.
