You may review the related courses listed at the bottom of the page.
This course examines how the next generation will be a major catalyst for change in the world. Our mission is to provide students with the tools to develop the essential skills for socially responsible leadership. Our world faces complex challenges some of which include: destruction of food systems, healthcare, global warming, conflicts and wars, poverty, global security, issues of wealth and poverty, human rights abuses. These challenges require thoughtful and deliberate solutions. UVM students in this course will understand and appreciate that world issues are not isolated but in fact interwoven. Students develop knowledge and understanding of complex issues through case studies, lectures with leading faculty, films and discussions with global thought leaders, company visits and group projects.
