In conjunction with the Notre Dame Forum: Going Global, Notre Dame International is pleased to announce the first essay contest on global citizenship. We invite all Notre Dame students to write a brief essay addressing what it means to be a global citizen, what the challenges and rewards are, and how you have used or will use your Notre Dame education to become a global citizen. The contest is open to all Notre Dame students.
Going Global: Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities of Globalization
Notre Dame is embarking on an ambitious plan to "go global." In this effort, we seek to further internationalize the curriculum, the student body and the faculty; to extend our institutional, scholarly and educational presence around the world; and, to deepen understanding of foreign cultures and societies while being attentive to America’s changing role in the world. In these and many other ways, we will prepare ND students for the transnational professional careers and vocations of the "globalized" 21st century.
