Center for GS&SJ Mission Statement

Based on the complexities and interconnectedness of global life, the Center for Global Studies & Social Justice at Avila University provides interdisciplinary programs, multicultural experiences and civic engagement opportunities that prepare Avila's students to make responsible lifelong contributions to the global community.

Through work and programs of the Center, students study and explore global perspectives concerning political institutions, environmental policy, ever-changing technology, and the exercise of social and material power of people within health, business, and culture.

The Center accomplishes its goal by integrating a broad array of on-campus and off-campus activities that include the implementation of global perspectives across the curriculum, the coordination of on-campus activities, the creation of partnerships with groups in the surrounding community, and the promotion of study abroad and international scholarship opportunities for students and faculty.
