Student Training Opportunities & Events for Fall 2021

The Faculty of Arts & Science is pleased to offer back-to-back showcases to highlight two exceptional opportunities at the University of Lethbridge. Learn more below.

We live in a global society with complex problems, and the world needs people who think critically and responsibly. Imagine making a difference in the world today, with friends and professors who inspire you! The Global Citizenship Cohort (GCC) offers a unique opportunity to connect some of your first-year courses around a common theme while interacting with a group of like-minded students. Learning both in and outside of the classroom will provide countless opportunities for you to grow — individually and as part of a group — into world leaders ready to make change happen.

On April 19th we hosted a virtual GCC Showcase with a fantastic group of current and prospective students. The showcase provided an opportunity to learn more about the GCC and hear from students who have participated in the GCC. Although this event was scheduled for an hour there was no stopping this group of over 100 enthusiastic participants as they had great questions. For those who were unable to attend, you can watch the video here.
