Global Citizenship Program

Start Date: May 2023
End Date: March 2024 

Registration Deadline: 31st March, 2023

What is Global Citizenship?

Global Citizenship is an orientation of care and concern for the world that includes other humans (with whom we may or may not have anything in common) as well as other beings and the planet. It implies a commitment to action, as well as to peace, social justice and sustainability.

About the Global Citizenship Program:

The Global Citizenship Program is a university certificate program that invites students to cultivate an ethical stance, a critical way of thinking, and a committed mode of intervening in a world populated by others with whom we must co-create a viable future.

It emphasizes collaboration across disciplines, professions, and the human variety of cultural, political and other experiences. We welcome students from any school or major.

Whether you plan to be an engineer or an artist, head into the start-up world or go on to med school, we believe that a global citizenship orientation can critically inform both your personal life and professional practice. As a group, we will dive into the biggest questions humanity is grappling with:

How do we live with others, respecting difference without abandoning our beliefs or forcing others to assimilate to us? How do we find peaceful ways to disagree? How do we protect our planet and its non-human residents both now and for the future?

Objectives of the Program:

  • Offers a big picture focus around both philosophy and practice
  • Provides a frame and forum in which to make sense of your many experiences at Lehigh
  • Mixes coursework, experiential elements, less traditional projects and varied modes of practice
  • Includes a unique cohort experience
