Global Engagement Week, which runs Feb. 29-March 4, is a new way to celebrate how St. Thomas engages with the world. Formerly International Education Week, Global Engagement Week supports the strategic themes of Globalization and One University.
The events throughout the week recognize the many global engagement efforts already taking place at the university in teaching, learning, research and service. Throughout the celebration, we also hope to highlight how each member of our community can engage globally and how we can support the St. Thomas vision for a better world.
Join President Julie Sullivan and Dr. Camille George, associate vice provost of global and local engagement, at the inaugural One University speaker event on Tuesday, March 1, at 3:30 p.m. in James B. Woulfe Alumni Hall. PBS journalist Fred de Sam Lazaro and his longtime producer Nikki See from The Under-Told Stories Project will co-present on “Making the Foreign Less Foreign.” The Under-Told Stories Project combines international journalism and teaching with a focus on issues related to social entrepreneurship. De Sam Lazaro and See joined the university community in January of this year.
