The Center for Global Citizenship was established because we believe a 21st century education must place at its core an emphasis on a broad understanding of the world. Its job is to promote global understanding and citizenship, foster a deep appreciation for the cultures of the world, challenge students to critically think about the world’s most pressing global issues, and help students understand how the United States fits into a global context. The Center has several dimensions:
International Student Travel & Exchanges
(Accessible using Community Login)
The Center for Global Citizenship oversees all international trips. During the 2011/2012 academic year, the Center offered trips to Nicaragua, London, France, Panama, the British Virgin Islands, India, Cambodia, Hong Kong, and Australia. During the 2012/2013 academic year, the CGC will offer trips/exchanges to the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Spain, Germany/Austria, Bahamas, Hong Kong, Italy, Cambodia, Peru, China, and Australia. To enable families to plan for future international trips and exchanges, the Center is providing a list of tentative travel opportunities through 2015.
Global Scholars Program
The Global Scholars Program is a four-year course of study examining different regions of the world, global leaders, pertinent issues, and politics.
Harriet Mullin Barry Fellowship
The Harriet Mullin Barry Fellowship program was established in 2008 by Thomas C. Barry and Martha Barry Horsburgh ’65 to provide for international travel and research by rising junior Global Scholars at Hathaway Brown School.
The CGC sponsors a lecture series that brings in speakers that expose the girls to new ideas, challenges their thinking, and informs them of pressing global and domestic issues.
Early Childhood Global Scholars Program
A partnership between US Global Scholars and our young students in Early Childhood, whereby students in both divisions will learn more about others and themselves.
Faculty Professional Development
Through generous donations from the Barry Family, Wolf Family Foundation and the Bingham Family Foundation, the CGC sponsors faculty travel and professional development.
Photos & Reflections
Traveling forces us to critically think about ourselves, others, and the world in new ways. Before, during, and after the trip, students participating in international travel and exchanges set aside time to think and write about the significance of the experience.
