Global Citizenship - Student Travel
At St. Mark’s we emphasize global competency and global civics. This approach differentiates us because the focus is not only on the travel experience of the students but on the engagement of the student and faculty with other ways of thinking and being as well as the responsibility of each of us as a member of the global community. Our ultimate goal is that every St. Mark’s student will have the chance to study an array of global issues in both required and elective courses across the curriculum, including political, economic, health, environmental, cultural, and social issues, as well as issues of perspective. And every St. Mark’s student will be given the opportunity to experience firsthand, through immersion, a culture that would otherwise be foreign to him or her; ‘learning by doing’ the task of cross-cultural understanding and difference.
