Testimonial From Advisory Committee Member

Mary Spangler, Chancellor, Oakland Community College

The Salzburg Global Seminar experience accomplished even more than was originally hoped for our Oakland Community College students. The intense opportunity to interact with peers in an international arena has challenged their imaginations, stimulated their critical thinking, and empowered them to participate actively in the College's strategic activities. Their shared global experience has made them more confident and mature. And this is just the beginning…..they are already engaged in recruiting students for next year's Seminar. We are committed to supporting this critical experience for more OCC students.


Participant Testimonial

Learning about how America is viewed from abroad is essential to the topic of global citizenship. I was able to detach myself from the American point of view and understand the why and how international opinion is formed. Some of the lessons that I learned are to speak openly about topics such as global citizenship and I realized that certain views are reached about specific cultures, many of which are not true. Meeting people from all across the US and in Europe who were willing to talk openly about their views was a very valuable aspect of the program for me. This is contagious and has allowed me to open up as well.
