June 2017


Faces of Globalization, the St. Ambrose University College of Arts and Sciences 2017-18 academic project theme, will explore the impact of globalization on foreign policy, economics, leadership, religion, culture and careers.

"Globalization is often defined as the shrinking of distances among the various continents and a worldwide interconnectedness of important aspects of human life-including religion, migration, war, finance, trade, drugs, food, music and art," said project coordinator Duk Kim, PhD, associate professor of political science and director of international studies.

Kim said a large menu of project programming will attempt to "highlight differences as a way to more clearly understand the various aspects of globalization for our campus community."

Among the events and presentations:
> A Sept. 27 presentation by alumni Franc Contreras '87, an American journalist and foreign correspondent.
> Cathi Tactaquin, executive director of the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, will provide the keynote address for the Ambrose Women for Social Justice Conference on Oct. 3.
> The annual QC World Cultures Festival will be held March 1 in the Rogalski Center.
> The Making Connections: Global Impacts of Art & Design conference will be held April 11-12 on campus.

In addition, students can immerse themselves within two learning communities-Faces of Globalization and Leadership in the 21st Century.
