Global Diversity Theme Year 2012-2013
Statement of Purpose
The Global Diversity Theme Year focuses our attention on the interdependence of international, transnational, and local phenomena in order to understand how we shape and are shaped by systems and values. With experiences on and off campus, we deepen our understanding of our identities as responsible "global citizens" through our diversity and shared dependence on the natural environment.
Established by the GDTY Committee on April 13, 2012.
Where you’ll find answers to your own questions.
You’ll come to Albion with big questions. And through the Foundation for Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity (FURSCA), you’ll have the means to find the answers. You’ll investigate, you’ll explore, and you’ll create. And that isn’t limited to the science lab. FURSCA is for anyone with a burning drive to know more. It’s hands-on. It’s original. And it’s all up to you.
We shut down the entire campus in the spring to showcase your work at the Elkin R. Isaac Student Research Symposium.
You can also follow your interest with off-campus research programs at places like the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee and the Newberry Library in Chicago.
