LSC-Montgomery Global Awareness Week

Sponsored by the International Student Organization

Global Awareness Week

Global Awareness Week's focus is on the appreciation of differences and commonalities among people from which they can begin to understand each other. These differences and commonalities include, but are not limited to, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, culture, cognitive ability, life experiences, family situations, and sexual orientation. The International Student Organization offers a week-long series of global exploration through several activities and events.
