Global Citizenship Alliance

Salzburg Global Seminar Proudly Announces the Launch of the Global Citizenship Alliance.
Newly established organization to operate Salzburg Global Seminar's successful Global Citizenship Program.

After 12 years, 71 sessions, and more than 3000 participants from 80 colleges and universities in the United States, the Global Citizenship Program (GCP) is reorganizing to increase its scope and streamline its operations. The GCP's staff have formed an independent organization, the Global Citizenship Alliance, which is assuming operating responsibility for global citizenship education programs previously run under Salzburg Global's aegis. The Alliance will continue to offer sessions "in association with Salzburg Global Seminar," underscoring both organizations' commitment to innovative, highest quality programs.

Long History, New Beginnings
Louise Hallman 
Even though the long-running Global Citizenship Program no longer appears on the Salzburg Global annual list of programs, global citizenship education is still very much alive in Salzburg. Now both Salzburg Global Seminar and the newly-formed Global Citizenship Alliance offer programs in association with each other, underscoring both organizations’ commitment to innovative, highest quality programs. The Global Citizenship Alliance was established in the Fall of 2015 to continue, strengthen and expand the work of Salzburg Global’s successful Global Citizenship Program (GCP), which in its 12 years had become one of the largest, most systematic, and most comprehensive programs on global citizenship education in the United States (where most of the partner schools are based). The Alliance has now assumed operating responsibility for the GCP and will hold six seminars in 2016.  Following a consultative process extending over several months, the senior leadership of Salzburg Global Seminar and the GCP staff agreed to place the GCP, also formerly known as the International Study Program (ISP), on new footing. Growing interest by program partners in a range of global citizenship education programs – the US as well as in Europe – argued for a dedicated organization able to respond flexibly to the needs and expectations of program partners and alumni. Many of the aspects that made the GCP unique will inevitably remain in the seminars run by the Alliance. Since its beginnings in 2004, the program sought to inspire and enact change within individual participants and their peer groups at their home colleges or universities. But beyond this, the program also aspired to change the very higher education institutions from which the students, faculty and administrators came.  In this vein, the Alliance will continue to operate programs for students, faculty, and administrators of higher education institutions. For its first full year of operation, the student sessions will continue to run in Salzburg, either at its original home of Schloss Leopoldskron or Schlosswirt Anif, just outside of the city. The faculty and administrator session will be held in the German city of Potsdam. The Alliance will also start to explore options for offering other programs and workshops in the US and begin developing an online platform to share the impact their seminars have had on their alumni. Announcing the Alliance’s launch in September 2015, Salzburg Global President Stephen Salyer said: “Salzburg Global believes in the mission and goals of the GCP and feels great pride in what it has achieved. “Steady support by Salzburg Global has allowed the GCP to build long-term partnerships, secure grants, and create brand recognition in relationship to our unique campus at Schloss Leopoldskron. We are pleased to help the GCP transition to a new operating structure and look forward to a close relationship for many years to come.” “We are grateful for and excited by this opportunity to take global citizenship education to new heights,” added Jochen Fried, now President and CEO of the Global Citizenship Alliance, who conceived the GCP and had been its Director ever since.  CONTINUING COMMITMENTWhile the GCP team might be moving on to pastures new, Salzburg Global Seminar is still involved in global citizenship education programs.  In addition to its supporting role of the GCA, Salzburg Global Seminar continues to run the Mellon-Global Citizenship Program (M-GCP) and support the summer programs of the Global Citizenship Institute at St. Mark’s School in Southborough, MA, USA. Launched as a follow-on of the Mellon Community Fellows Initiative and with continued financial support of the Andrew. W. Mellon Foundation, the Mellon-Global Citizenship Program held its first Global Citizenship Summit in Atlanta, GA, USA, in October 2015. The Summit brought together 40 faculty and administrators from select Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and members of the Appalachian College Association (ACA). They shared and received feedback on deepening their institutions’ global citizenship education work, expanded and enhanced multi-campus partnerships, and established new collaborative program activities. The M-GCP also awarded its first round of grants to support a Visiting Specialist Series whereby a global citizenship education expert will visit multiple schools to meet with faculty, administrators, and students. The grants also support Study Away Incentive Programs, which allows multiple institutions to coordinate on a shared domestic “study away” experience, an Undergraduate Research Conference, and participation in the next Global Citizenship Summit. The Global Citizenship Institute, conceived by Salzburg Global Fellow and St. Mark’s School teacher Laura Appell-Warren, is an innovative collaboration between the high school and Salzburg Global that adopts and adapts the GCP for the high school sector. It will hold its third summer program for high school students and their teachers in 2016. As Dr. Walter Fluker, Martin Luther King Jr. Professor of Ethical Leadership at Boston University School of Theology stated at the opening of the M-GCP’s 2015 Summit: “Global citizenship education is a conscious and courageous commitment to the future.” This is a commitment Salzburg Global Seminar will continue to honor.

The report from the inaugural Global Citizenship Summit is now available to read, download and share. The summit that took place from October 29-31 2015 at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA was held as part of the Salzburg Global Seminar Mellon-Global Citizenship Program (M-GCP). This first summit focused on the theme of Sustainability and Innovation. An Undergraduate Research Conference with the theme, Global Sustainability: Cultural and Scientific Issues and Perspectives, was organized by Lindsey Wilson College and held in concurrently at Clark Atlanta University on October 30. Approximately fifty educators and practitioners representing around twenty of the M-GCP institutions were brought together at the summit to showcase innovative global citizenship education approaches, share information and results, align work across the various activities of the Fellows, develop new spin-off activities and plan for the activities' ongoing sustainability. Also attending the summit were prominent experts in global citizenship education as well as members of the Advisory Council of the M-GCP. The summit built on the rich history and legacy of civil and human rights as global engagement by partnering with Atlanta-based institutions for events at the Jimmy Cart Presidential Library and Museum and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Inc. The M-GCP has continued its work with a second round of project activity grants being awarded earlier in the year and also by making preparations for a second Global Citizenship Summit planned for the fall of 2016. The Mellon Global Citizenship Program builds on the Mellon Fellow Community Initiative and supports thirty-six colleges and universities representing select HBCUs and members of the Appalachian College Association in their ongoing efforts to develop, implement and expand global citizenship education activities on their campuses and in collaboration with others involved in the M-GCP. The Mellon Global Citizenship Program is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Global Citizenship Institute Opens Registration for Summer Program
Registration for this year's Summer Global Citizenship Institute program is now open
Global Citizenship Institute Opens Registration for Summer Program
Patrick Wilson 
The Global Citizenship Institute is hosting its third summer program at St. Mark’s School in Southborough, MA, USA from July 10 to 16, 2016. GCI is an innovative collaboration between St Mark’s School and Salzburg Global Seminar that aims to promote problem solving of both global and local significance by offering education and support to faculty and students from public, private and international high schools. Participants will have the opportunity to listen to leaders in the field of global citizenship and work with teachers trained at Salzburg Global Seminar. They will also work collaboratively with both school teams and teams from around the world to create action plans to take back home to their schools. The goal of the GCI is to offer an opportunity for students and faculty from diverse schools to explore, together with leaders in the field of global citizenship, the meaning of global citizenship and its implications on the local and global level for them as individuals, citizens, and as members of institutions. For teachers and students alike, the program offers a wealth of experience, a chance to make new connections as well as understand the responsibilities we all face as global citizens. The subsequent action plans formed at the program can then also teach colleagues, peers and students at the participants' home institutions about global citizenship. Outside of the classroom, there will also be opportunity to explore Boston, home of the Freedom Trail and other exciting sights like the USS Constitution, The Museum of Fine Arts, the Science Museum and much more. St. Mark’s School became a partner institution of Salzburg Global Seminar's long-running Global Citizenship Programme in 2011 and at the time was the first high school to send teachers to the program which usually is for higher education institutions only. The idea was formed that St. Mark’s would emulate the program by adopting and adapting it for the high school sector. GCI has also released a video from last year’s students discussing how they got engaged at the program and how future applications can as well. If you’re interested in learning how to become a more engaged global citizen and create an action plan for your school, follow this link to register for the July program: http://gc-institute.com/registration Applications are on a first come first serve basis.

Mellon Global Citizenship Program Announces Second Round of Grants
Mellon Global Citizenship Program Announces Second Round of Grants
M-GCP Team 
Salzburg Global Seminar is pleased to announce the second round of grants awarded to select Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and members of the Appalachian College Association (ACA) to support the implementation of innovative global citizenship education programs.  These grants are made possible through the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The grants are a feature of the Mellon Global Citizenship Program launched in 2014 to deepen and consolidate the successful global citizenship education work initiated with 36 partner institutions. The M-GCP is the outgrowth of the multi-year Mellon Fellow Community Initiative (MFCI), which ran from 2008 to 2013.  In 2015, seven grants were awarded through the M-GCP, and in 2016 an additional six grants have been awarded on a competitive basis.  The grants support partner institutions expanding and deepening their work as sites of global citizenship.  A unique feature of these grants is that they simultaneously support collaboration between HBCU and ACA member institutions.  The ACA and HBCU institutions share many common attributes based on their long histories serving unique and diverse student bodies and the broader communities around them.  Their distinct communities and geographical distances, however, have not encouraged collaboration among them, but the M-GCP (and MFCI before that) have helped the institutions to test and validate the multiple benefits that result from these cooperative efforts.  The M-GCP is also supporting the partner institutions in planning for the creation of a new independent consortium to facilitate ongoing collaboration as leaders in the field of global citizenship education.  The Salzburg Global program directors that originated the global citizenship program, Jochen Fried and David Goldman, explain that “ ‘Globalization at home’ is about teaching and modeling inclusion, diversity and reciprocity in the context of how one relates to an increasingly interdependent world. It is as much about crossing national or state borders as it is about crossing ‘borders of the mind’ by reaching out to ‘otherness.’ … The specific constellation of ACA and HBCU institutions offers a unique opportunity, through cooperation, to make ‘globalization at home’ and ‘citizenship without borders’ a powerful and tangible learning experience.”     The institutions receiving grants through the M-GCP will be supported in their efforts to expand collaborative activities, demonstrating the powerful value-added impact of cooperation among ACA and HBCU institutions, and to continue to work towards the creation of an independent organization to support ongoing joint projects and initiate new collaborations related to global citizenship education.   “Global citizenship is no longer just an idealized rhetorical term used in textbooks.  It is the reality that today's students will live as part of their future.  Those of us who are college educators will fail to provide future-focused preparation if we overlook this aspect of our students' educational experience,” stated Betty Overton-Adkins, an M-GCP Advisory Council member and Director of the National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good at the University of Michigan.   The vital importance of global citizenship education for students was articulated by Sederra Ross (then a senior at Clark Atlanta University) at the 2015 Global Citizenship Summit, “Global citizenship education forces me to operate outside of my comfort zone. As an aspiring green chemist, [it] has given me the tools to make myself a better citizen and a better person. It’s like I have superpowers.”  This round of grants includes support for Visiting Specialist Series whereby a global citizenship education expert will visit multiple schools to meet with faculty, administrators, and students; Study Away Incentive Programs whereby multiple institutions will coordinate on a shared domestic ‘study away’ experience; an Undergraduate Research Conference; and a Global Citizenship Summit. To further consolidate and demonstrate the benefits of HBCU-ACA collaboration and build towards a long-term multi-institution consortium across these systems, the Undergraduate Research Conference and the Global Citizenship Summit will both be held this year in conjunction with the Appalachian College Association’s annual summit which takes place from September 29 to October 2 in Kingsport, Tennessee.   The following grants are being awarded for 2016  • Hampton University and Bluefield College: Global Directions of the Progressive Generation (Visiting Specialist Series) • Florida Memorial University and Berea College: Global African (Diaspora) Citizenship (Study Away Incentive Program) • Dillard University and University of Charleston: Immigration through the Lens of Global Citizenship (Study Away Incentive Program) • Howard University and Davis & Elkins College: Global Education – HBCU & ACA Collaborative Enrichment (Study Away Incentive Program) • Lindsey Wilson College (lead institution), Bennett College, Brevard College, Clark Atlanta University, and Ferrum College: Global Citizenship: Exploring Problems , Finding Solutions (Undergraduate Research Conference held concurrent to the Global Citizenship Summit) • Lindsey Wilson College (lead institution), Bennett College, Brevard College, Clark Atlanta University, and Ferrum College: Strength through Diversity: Partnering for Effective Global Citizenship Education (Global Citizenship Summit)  Salzburg Global Seminar congratulates all of the institutions that have been selected for grant awards.   More information about the M-GCP can be found in the attached overview, as well as at the M-GCP website.  Please contact David Goldman at DGoldman@SalzburgGlobal.org for enquiries related to the M-GCP.

Colleges and Universities Re-unite to Strengthen Efforts toward Global Citizenship Education

Colleges and Universities Re-unite to Strengthen Efforts toward Global Citizenship Education
Adam Beeson 
More than 40 faculty and administrators from select Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and members of the Appalachian College Association (ACA) convened at the first annual Global Citizenship Summit to share and receive feedback on deepening global citizenship education work, expand and enhance multi-campus partnerships, and establish new collaborative program activities. The Summit was hosted by Clark Atlanta University and co-organized by Morehouse and Spelman Colleges, October 29-31, 2015.  “Global citizenship education is a conscious and courageous commitment to the future,” Dr. Walter Fluker, Martin Luther King Jr. Professor of Ethical Leadership at Boston University School of Theology, told Summit participants. “We are not sure how we will get to where we are going, but we are prepared to make this first step together.” The Summit, which included programs at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum as well as the Center for Civil and Human Rights, was a result of a competitive grant process organized as part of the Mellon Global Citizenship Program (M-GCP) of Salzburg Global Seminar. The M-GCP was launched in 2014 to further the innovative work that moved 36 US colleges and universities – all of which are either HBCUs or members of the ACA – toward becoming sites of global citizenship education as part of the Mellon Fellow Community Initiative.   Focusing on the theme Sustainability and Innovation, participants in the Summit heard from world-class speakers on global citizenship education and outlined concrete next steps for the creation of the Global Education Consortium, an independent organization that will support activities and partnerships developed through the M-GCP. An undergraduate research conference organized by Lindsey Wilson College was held concurrent to the Summit at Clark Atlanta University and was an opportunity for students to engage directly in the core theme and present their own innovations and ideas.  “Global citizenship education is the umbrella that captures various projects found across university spaces,” Dr. Ronald A. Johnson, president of Clark Atlanta University, said. “One benefit of global citizenship collaboration is that we improve our understanding of each other and how we relate to the world itself. Universities must look at mechanisms for multi-campus collaboration to prepare students to move to a place in which they are more accepting and more understanding of the dynamics that make the human community who we are and how we all fit in the context of this planet. To me, that is at the heart of global citizenship education.” The Summit offered 2015 M-GCP grantees the opportunity to discuss the process and results of recent multi-campus programmatic activities, including the global education visiting specialist series Global Citizenship Revisited: New Approaches to Achieve Global Competencies between Ferrum College, Bennett College, and King University, along with a partnership between Florida Memorial University and Berea College on Global African Diaspora Citizenship. Dr. Bettie Starr, vice president for academic affairs at Lindsey Wilson College, described the upcoming study away incentive program Trading Spaces, a collaboration between her institution and Clark Atlanta University, as an opportunity for urban and rural students to gain new experiences and perspectives that may otherwise not be available to them. “Global citizenship education is a vibrant and integrated part of our campus,” Starr said. “We have revised our general education requirements to include the student-learning outcome ‘engaged local and global citizenship,’ and we have started a Center for Global Citizenship on campus. When the opportunity arose to collaborate with HBCUs, we jumped on it.”  Students benefiting from the activities of the M-GCP also had the opportunity to address the value and impact of global citizenship on their educational experiences.  “Global citizenship education forces me to operate outside of my comfort zone,” Sederra Ross, a senior chemistry major at Clark Atlanta University, told Summit participants. “As an aspiring green chemist, global education has given me the tools to make myself a better citizen and a better person. It’s like I have superpowers.”  Throughout the Summit, participants met in thematic issue groups to identify opportunities for future multi-campus collaboration on global citizenship education programs. The Leadership Circle, a working group of senior administrators from M-GCP partner institutions, met with M-GCP Advisory Council members to outline specific plans for a new independent consortium to facilitate ongoing collaboration as leaders in the field of global citizenship education once the current program activities end in 2017. In addition to deepening global citizenship work across academic institutions, the Summit also addressed the need for colleges and universities to form strategic partnerships outside of academia. M-GCP Advisory Council member Dr. Yolanda Moses moderated a panel of experts at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum that included Professor Wallace Ford, founder of Fordworks LLC, and Dr. Jennie K. Lincoln, director of The Americas Program at The Carter Center. “The first study abroad programs at universities were a choice,” Lincoln said. “Global education is no longer a choice. The world is becoming flat, and the requirement for educators is to prepare students to be able to function in that world. Developing strategic partnerships between academia and the private sector, government, and non-profit organizations is critical.” At The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Inc, civil rights leader and former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Andrew Young, encouraged Summit participants and students from the Undergraduate Research Conference to identify strategic opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration on solving the world’s most pressing issues. Fellow panelist Carlotta Arthur, program director of the Clare Boothe Luce Program at the Henry Luce Foundation, concurred, and reminded the participants both how unique and highly valuable the collaboration among the HBCU and ACA schools is.   “The specific constellation of ACA and HBCU institutions offers a unique opportunity, through cooperation, to make ‘globalization at home’ and ‘citizenship without borders’ a powerful and tangible learning experience,” said M-GCP manager David Goldman. Other speakers at the Global Citizenship Summit and Undergraduate Research Conference included Dr. Maghan Keita, director of the Institute for Global Interdisciplinary Studies at Villanova University; Anne Gahongayire, former Secretary General, Supreme Court, Rwanda; Deborah J. Richardson, interim CEO of The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Inc; and Dr. Champa Patel, director of Campaigns Programme and interim director of the South East Asia and Pacific Regional Office at Amnesty International.

Salzburg Global Seminar Proudly Announces the Launch of the Global Citizenship Alliance
Salzburg Global Seminar staff 
After 12 years, 71 sessions, and more than 3000 participants from 80 colleges and universities in the United States, the Global Citizenship Program (GCP) is reorganizing to increase its scope and streamline its operations. The GCP’s staff have formed an independent organization, the Global Citizenship Alliance, which is assuming operating responsibility for global citizenship education programs previously run under Salzburg Global’s aegis. The Alliance will continue to offer sessions “in association with Salzburg Global Seminar,” underscoring both organizations’ commitment to innovative, highest quality programs. Following a consultative process extending over several months, the senior leadership of Salzburg Global Seminar and the GCP staff agreed to place the GCP, formerly known as the International Study Program (ISP), on new footing. Growing interest by program partners in a range of global citizenship education programs – close to home as well as overseas – argued for a dedicated organization able to respond flexibly to the needs and expectations of program partners and alumni.  Areas of interest for the newly formed Alliance include: offering GCP sessions and workshops at locations in the United States and at the long-standing anchor location in Salzburg;tailor-making programs for GCP alumni and other constituencies;increasing input by GCP stakeholders, including engagement by partner institutions, faculty and students in program design, curriculum development and new initiatives. “Salzburg Global believes in the mission and goals of the GCP and feels great pride in what it has achieved,” said Salzburg Global President Stephen Salyer. “Steady support by Salzburg Global has allowed the GCP to build long-term partnerships, secure grants and create brand recognition in relationship to our unique campus at Schloss Leopoldskron. We are pleased to help the GCP transition to a new operating structure, and look forward to a close relationship for many years to come.” “We are grateful for and excited by this opportunity to take global citizenship education to new heights,” commented Jochen Fried, President of the Global Citizenship Alliance, who conceived the GCP twelve years ago and had been its Director ever since. “From its beginning, the GCP has operated in close partnership with dedicated colleges and universities, and with a core faculty who have given the program inspiration and depth.  Now that partnership will further intensify. With participants from ages 17 to 70, we can together make global citizenship an essential ingredient in 21st century education.”  Astrid Schroeder, Chief Operating Officer of the Global Citizenship Alliance and former Program Director of the GCP added: “GCP partner institutions have built on their Salzburg experience to launch global education programs suitable for the communities they serve. The Global Citizenship Alliance will help expand these efforts and foster active cooperation among our partners.” On October 18, the GCA Board of Directors met for the first time to ratify the organization’s operating structure and elected Jochen Fried its president.  For 2016, the GCA has already announced plans for seven sessions, with additional activities under discussion with partner colleges and universities.
