For Better or Worse: Crossing the Line


November 14-15, 2022

Many issues that shape the quality of our lives have an international dimension. Global economic interdependence is now a reality that no nation can ignore. The development of appropriate environmental strategies, the resolution of regional conflicts and the enhancement of human rights all require a global perspective.
The World Affairs program includes:

  • The introduction of important global issues to the students and local community
  • Exposure to a variety of viewpoints from other countries
  • Promotion of global awareness
