Conversation on Community
Richard Longworth, senior fellow of The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and an expert on globalization's impact on the Midwest, spoke with WMUK in Kalamazoo leading up to his participation on the September 11 "Albion Tomorrow" panel discussion.
New views, broader understanding.
Our world today faces unprecedented change. At Albion, you will become an informed global citizen, ready for whatever challenges the future may bring, through classes on issues that transcend national boundaries—and through living and learning with students who come from Asia to Africa and South America to Europe.
You might find that your academic and career exploration takes you off-campus to gain global perspective. We offer programs on six continents, including opportunities to study at some of the world's great universities and to pursue internships in business, government, and private agencies in places like London, Paris, Madrid, Cape Town, and Sydney.
Currently, over the course of a full academic year, the entire College community is exploring themes that have great importance for the future of our planet:
- Sustainability (2010-11)
- Health/Wellness (2011-12)
- Global Diversity (2012-13)
We will bring to campus leaders and thinkers from a wide variety of fields, and together we will reflect on how we can advance the quality of life for us as individuals and as members of the world community.
