“Global Citizenship in an Evolving World” is the common theme selected for the 2013-2014 academic year. As stated in the proposal, globalization has triggered a wide range of social, cultural, political, environmental, and economic changes throughout the world. Virtually all fields of study and industries are now impacted by global issues.
The purpose of the Common Theme program at UW-Green Bay is to involve students, faculty, staff, and our community in a focused dialogue about a specific issue or area of study. This year, it is international issues and our roles as engaged citizens in the world community. The theme will enable concentrated exploration of our moral and ethical responsibilities to the world community.
The theme was proposed by Kristy Aoki, Office of International Education, faculty in Global Studies, and the International Education Committee.
