Engage Global Issues (GLO)

The world is interconnected. A flood in one country ripples around the world. Political upheavals cross borders. Trade is global. Financial traumas reverberate across the globe. And communications connect us all. The ability and responsibility to understand complex issues requires students to study different parts of the world and engage global issues.
