Welcome to Global Humboldt - the International Studies blog!
The International Studies major continues to change and respond, not only to the evolving needs and interests of our students, but to the world beyond our unique place on the ‘lost coast’. In an effort to open channels for student expression, we created The Ambassador, the International Studies Journal. Entirely student run, the team deemed this a little too formal and it has gradually shifted towards a webzine format. However, the feeling lingered that there should be even more open space for INTL voices – both while students are on campus and from abroad. The creation of a blog seemed the logical next step.
As we become more aware of the interconnections of our world and the need for global leadership on issues of sustainability and social responsibility, we must also deepen our understanding that there is no way to isolate ourselves in our little paradise and claim victory on these issues.
Global Humboldt is a place to reflect on, recognize and mark, the enmeshed and truly global nature of our shared village as well as the INTL belief in education as a transformative process that is rooted in the community around us, but always reaching out to touch, and change, the world.
In the form of ‘Humboldt Moments’ or, for seniors, the ‘Capstone Minute’ we are looking for brief, positive observations in words, images or video that reveal what you are learning here at home and while you are far away.
If you are an International Studies major - any year, any concentration – or an INTL alum! - this is a platform for you to share the milestones of your own journey.
