Testimonial From Advisory Committee Member

Augie Gallego, former Chancellor, San Diego Community College District

While our students at SDCCD represent all socioeconomic levels, the vast majority of them cannot rearrange academic, work, or family priorities to participate in the summer or semester-abroad program. They must be provided with the opportunity to be immersed in international issues over a short period of time. The Salzburg Global Seminar's GCP gives our students precisely that experience.

Similarly, only a few faculty members each year can participate in a summer or semester abroad experience. Faculty gain greatly from participation in the week-long Salzburg Global Seminar and are expected to bring their expanded perspective back to their individual classroom and to their colleagues. Students are the fortunate recipients of each faculty member's experience.

Having recently participated in an GCP program, I can attest that the Salzburg Global Seminar's GCP provides students, faculty, and administrators with precisely the experience needed to begin bridging intercultural and international gaps. Recent world events suggest this program is needed more than ever. I encourage my fellow presidents and chancellors to make the GCP experience available to their students, faculty, and administrators.


Participant Testimonial

I saw the United States from a different perspective - it raises the debate within me in a good way. Interest has been sparked within me to learn as much as I can about being an effective global citizen. At the beginning of the week I was not sure what to think, but the group work and interaction has made this a very positive and beneficial experience for me. I go away knowing and wanting to know more about global citizenship. I can't wait to take this back with me and put it into use. I am really interested in NGO's now. I want to get involved with one.
