About the Program:
Globalization has changed everything, and continues doing so. Globalization has made the world smaller by substituting speed, connection and complexity for distance. It has interconnected everything with everything else in ever more effective and profound ways, linking you to the world. What does this mean for your students and the world?

Globalization 101 begins with a short (2.5 minute) movie that provides a global perspective on the problems of the world. Globalization is then defined and presented within a historical context. Various facets of globalization (economic, technologic, cultural, political, environmental) are gone over. How we measure globalization and where it is taking us are presented. Students are engaged in a discussion of what they think globalization is and what it means for them—in terms of the importance of continuing their education, global competition, jobs, friends and opportunities.
