Global Awareness

Global Awareness is promoted across the curriculum at UW-Superior, as well as through the Office of International Programs. UW-Superior, which enrolls over 200 international students from over 50 countries annually, emphasizes courses and programs that help students explore local and global cultures, diverse life experiences, and multiple worldviews different from their own.

These global awareness studies, which address diverse United States and global world cultures, explore issues of equity, diversity and inclusion related to racial, ethnicity, class, religious, gender, and sexuality inequality. Global Awareness studies encourage us to be knowledgeable and empathetic to the struggles around the globe related to human rights, personal and social freedoms, and social justice. Frequently, global awareness is facilitated or augmented by experiential learning in diverse communities, study away/abroad opportunities, and collaborative international online learning.
