Presentation Title

Becoming Global Citizens: Studying Abroad

Location

Meyer Auditorium

Abstract

Lake Forest College is dedicated to preparing students to become responsible, global citizens. The experiential learning that off-campus experiences provides—through study, internship and local engagement with the culture at hand—prepares students to enter the post-graduation workforce and graduate school with a greater worldview. Expanded linguistic, social and cultural competencies gained off-campus synergistically connect a variety of majors and prepare students well for an ever-changing global workspace. Students on this panel will discuss their specific off-campus learning in the context of their academic and personal interests, and reflect on what they have gained from these cultural experiences as well as how their time studying abroad has prepared them for post-graduation achievements in an increasingly globalized world.
