Connie Magnuson, Ph.D., director of the School of Kinesiology’s Recreation, Park, and Leisure Studies program, will present her poster Global Connectedness: Our Actions Matter at a conference on September 30, 2016 at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs on the U of M campus.
Internationalizing the Curriculum and Campus Conference: Preparing Global-Ready Students will showcase current programs, research, and initiatives to internationalize the curriculum and campus at the University of Minnesota. The conference is free and open to all University of Minnesota staff, faculty, and students.
In her presentation, Magnuson will underscore these points about internationalization: “Whether we are diving in Belize, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro or surfing in Panama, a constant theme in all of these learning abroad courses is: how we choose to live, the resources we use and the actions we take, have a global impact. Students become immersed in the environment and the culture of these international locations and gain first hand knowledge of how interconnected we really are on this planet and what it means to be a global citizen.”
