What is The Global Home?
The Global Home living and learning community is a great opportunity for any freshmen student to join a group of students who are interested in engaging in cross-cultural dialogues and self-awareness. Students who are chosen for this living/learning community will engage in opportunities to explore complex issues of identity, gender and ethnicity, and will reach into and beyond their own cultural backgrounds and learn about the experiences of others.
What are the benefits?
Our world is currently being transformed into one of global connections and communication. By participating in this program students will be exposed to ways of interpersonal communication that will greatly assist them in a post graduate setting. Work forces are now looking for employees who have had the chance to develop cultural sensitivity and are educated about the world around them. In addition, the Global Home will be a setting of social and peer to peer interaction. For new students coming to UMD with no connections it is a great chance to make new friends!
Who should apply?
Anyone with interests in the wide diversity of people who make up our school, state, and world! This is a particularly ideal learning community for students considering majors in international studies, education, cultural studies, a foreign language, American Indian Studies, African American Studies, business, or those considering studying abroad. To apply to be a part of this wonderful learning experience please click on the "Register Here" link above.
Students in The Global Home will be provided opportunities to attend programs and activities, during fall and spring semesters. Community building and leadership opportunities are important aspects of The Global Home experience. These shared experiences will bring the community together, foster friendship and support, promote understanding and educate us all about the successes and challenges of a multicultural learning community.
