Fall 2014 Lyceum Lecture Series

Global Citizenship

Diversity-competent citizens are needed worldwide, and in all sectors, including business (private and public), non-profit organizations, education,environment, health care, and government. What is diversity and what is diversity competency? Why does diversity matter on campus and in the community?

The Fall 2014 Lyceum Lecture series, "Global Citizenship," sponsored by the Lee Honors College, will help participants explore and understand diversity and diversity competence from an interdisciplinary and global perspective. 

Lectures will be held Wednesdays from noon to 1 p.m. in the Lee Honors College lounge, unless otherwise noted.
