Carol Hoffmann Collins Global Scholars-in-Residence

A necessary condition for global citizenship is an understanding of critical international issues from cross-cultural and cross-national perspectives. One way through which the McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives fosters such understanding is by hosting the Carol Hoffmann Collins Global Scholars-in-Residence who engages the community in dialogue on important global issues in a variety of settings, from lectures to classes to informal gatherings.
