Did you receive an invitation to the Global Communities Living Learning Program at the University of Maryland?
UMD president, Wallace D. Loh, visited Dorchester Hall on December 13th to show support for GC students and residents studying for finals. Students were treated to a study break of fresh-baked cookies and hot cocoa, sponsored by the UMD Department of Resident Life.
President Loh's 2015 Holiday Greeting celebrated global citizenship and campus diversity.
Prof. Virginia Haufler, Director of the Global Communities program, was selected by the Center for Teaching and Learning Transformation as an Elevate Fellow for 2016. She will participate in workshops and classes on teaching and learning, and work with mentors to transform the core GC courses.
Global Service in the Dominican Republic (BSGC338D/LASC369R – 3 credits) is a high-energy and engaging program, led by GC associate director, Malaika Serrano, and supported by program coordinator, Natalie Vinski. The course took place during Winter Break (January 4-15, 2016), grounded on the premise that community service is a valuable response to social problems faced by marginalized populations.
