The Douglass Global Village Learning Communities!

About Global Village

The Global Village is a learning community that seeks to develop intercultural appreciation, global awareness and a sense of community among students at Douglass. This unique year-long experience in a themed “house” combines academic and co-curricular activities, including a 1.5 credit course in the fall and spring, designed to enhance each student’s overall experience.  

In the spring term, students will work on a project related to their house theme that will be showcased during Douglass Discovery Day.

Participating in the Global Village community makes you eligible to join the Global Leaders FUNDED study abroad program in a subsequent year. Open for residents and commuters!
