We believe diverse UW Tacoma students possess the power to create meaningful interpersonal, community and global connections that build positive social change. In this program, domestic and international students will engage in a yearlong 'social group’ where together we explore community issues through dialogue and service.
The Global Ambassadors Program seeks to create globally minded students from the standpoint of cultural humility and through a sincere connection between our local and global communities. The program reflects UWT’s urban serving mission through dedicated work in developing student’s interest and understanding of social justice issues while providing real ways in which students are encouraged to be involved on our campus and in our community.
- Students will be able to articulate what cultural humility means, why it’s important, and how they use it in their everyday lives
- Students will be able to identify three examples of power, privilege, and/or oppression in the community considering a local and international lens.
- Students will learn how to build meaningful relationships with people from diverse backgrounds and learn to feel more comfortable having civil conversations with people of differing opinions.
- Students will be able to reflect on their biases, privileges, and the general intersectionality of their identity.
