Global Vision Week


Global Vision Week is September 16-20, 2013.  This year’s theme is "Focus on Asia: Relationships Past & Present."  Many of the activities we will engage in throughout the week will help us develop a better understanding of our historical and current relationships with various countries in Asia and why understanding this part of the world is relevant and important today. 

The keynote address and the inaugural Albert Ravenholt Visiting Scholar will be Thursday, September 19 and will be given by Ambassador Kenneth M. Quinn.  Dr. Quinn is a former U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia and is currently the President of the World Food Prize Foundation.  His address will be followed by a picnic lunch and dedication of the Grand Central Plaza and our new core curriculum.  Everyone is invited to these events and encouraged to attend.
