Glavin Global Fellows – A Year In Review

Please see a summary of Glavin Global Fellows activities in the 2016-2017 academic year below.  We have been busy and have done a lot of wonderful things!

We kicked off the first GGF Living Learning Community for first-year students.  Sixteen (16) students participated in the GGF LLC, had their First-Year Seminar together and lived in a shared space in Park Manor West.
Four Glavin Global Fellows participated in an International Business Case Competition at Northeastern University in the Fall.
A large group of Glavin Global Fellows joined the United Nations in celebrating their 70th anniversary at a luncheon in Boston.
We learned Bangra dancing from Anjali Wali, Associate Director, Friends and Family to let off some stress during winter finals.
We sent three students to the Third Culture Kid / Global Nomad conference at Clark University.
We attended a Boston College Colloquium to hear Mary Robinson, Ireland’s former President, speak about making human rights the compass for all ethical globalization.  A special focus was placed on climate justice and its impact on a global scale.
Four Glavin Global Fellows participated in an International Business Case Competition at the University of Missouri, St. Louis in the Spring.  The team won 2nd prize!
We sent students to The Netherlands, Costa Rica, South Africa, Chile and Greece this year to embark on independent research project and language learning endeavors.  All the Glavin Global Fellows projects are highlighted here.
The GGF grantees showcased their projects at the End-of-the-Year event in the Glavin Chapel.
Twelve graduating seniors earned their Glavin Global Fellows certificates for completing the curricular and co-curricular requirements of the program.  We had a graduate luncheon and they will wear their GGF cords at commencement.
