Your Journey Awaits You
Are you passionate about advancing gender equity and human rights across the globe? Looking to study international relations, human rights, or trying to figure out how to work with and learn from a community abroad? Interested in learning decolonial, holistic, and community-centered ways of engaging the world? By participating in global initiatives at Douglass you set the course of your global education journey. You make an impact both at home in New Brunswick and globally – all while growing as an empathetic leader and anti-colonial, anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-classist, and anti-ableist advocate.
A year-long experience in a themed “house.” You will take two credit-bearing courses in the Fall and Spring, conduct research on a topic related to the theme, and engage with the larger New Brunswick community through service learning. Participating in the Global Village community makes you eligible to join the Global Leaders program in a subsequent year. Open for residents and commuters.
A year-long experience open to all Douglass students who previously participated in the Global Village. You will take two credit-bearing courses in the Fall and Spring and have an international service-learning project experience fully funded by Douglass. Over the course of a year, you will learn deeply about the culture of a country, travel abroad during Winter break, and connect what you learned to the New Brunswick community upon your return.
