Highlights of this event are:

  • a welcome by Dr. Jan Boxill, chair of the faculty and director of the Parr Center for Ethics
  • a student plenary where you'll hear first-hand about ethical challenges faced by other students
  • small group facilitated discussions where you'll have the opportunity for an engaging and challenging dialog
  • an intimate global connections lunch with individuals from the countries or regions where you'll travel
  • two global workshop sessions led by world-renowned faculty and staff on issues of critical importance to your global engagement work
  • networking opportunities with other students embarking on global engagement experiences

The orientation is open to UNC students who will complete global engagement work – service, internships, research or service-learning, this summer or next fall.
