We recognize that the world that we live in is no longer separated by people, language, cultural values, beliefs, and events. The world is interconnected through people and events; and these people and events are continually shaping our communities, our state, our college, and more importantly . . . ourselves.
What is a denizen? A denizen is someone who has lived at a particular place for a prolonged period of time and has learned the culture of their new environment. It is our hope that students who become part of the Student World Denizen Project will learn and embrace the new diverse cultures and people with which they come into contact. We want our students to look beyond the classrooms of SCC and see the world and understand that our concept of community now extends beyond the campus, city, county, and the state, to encompass the world. We want our students to have the knowledge and skills that will allow them to participate in the global community and to become global citizens.
SCC’s Global Education Student World Denizen Project is designed to more fully globalize our curriculum and increase faculty, staff and student awareness and involvement in global issues, activities and dialogue through the implementation of a series of SCC-sponsored activities.
The Global Education Student World Denizen project includes the following requirements:
The overall mission of the Nebraska Community College Global Leadership Consortium is to provide opportunities to engage students and faculty from all the participating community colleges in joint global activities, which will include those sponsored by individual institutions and those sponsored by the consortium of Nebraska community colleges (Central Community College, Mid-Plains Community College, Northeast Community College, Southeast Community College and Western Nebraska Community College).
