Global at Douglass
A Global Impact
The Global initiatives at Douglass are a set of opportunities that prioritize the intersection of community outreach, experiential learning, and global initiatives. By participating in Douglass' global programs, you can immerse yourself in themed learning communities, research international concerns, study abroad, and more.
Global Village Learning Communities offer a year-long experience in a themed “house.” You will take a credit-bearing course, conduct research on a topic related to the theme, and engage with the larger New Brunswick community through service learning.
The Global Leaders initiative is a study abroad program open to all Douglass students who previously participated in a Global Village learning community. Over the course of a year, you will learn deeply about the culture of a country, travel abroad for free during Winter break, and connect what you learned to the New Brunswick community upon your return.
Through Global Engagement at Douglass, you will have access to cutting-edge speakers, workshops, and opportunities for faculty-led research on international topics.
Service learning is a dynamic, immersive experience for students. As a member of any Global Village program, you will collaborate with local organizations to create meaningful partnerships between our college and local communities.
