The Dean's Series: 'Putting Our Heads in the Sand Won't Make the World Go Away'

Alberto Godenzi

OCTOBER 23, 2012
6:30 p.m.
Cadigan Alumni Center atrium, 2121 Commonwealth Avenue,
Brighton, MA (maps & directions)
Free parking adjacent to building

A presentation featuring Alberto Godenzi, Dean of Boston College Graduate School of Social Work.

We all have a sense that our world has become smaller, but what does it really mean that our lives have been transformed by globalization? This presentation proposes that we are global citizens whether we want it or not. To be able to act in the global arena, we need to increase our understanding of world issues and expand our language versatility. And while we do all that, we will face the biggest challenge: how to remain or become humble when we interact with other people, cultures, and systems. If we are not up for any of this, we will stand still and most likely fall behind.

Refreshments will be served at the event. All are welcome. Admission is free for students, $10 for alumni.

Sponsored by the Boston College Alumni Association. For more information, call 617-552-4700.
