CROSO mentioned at the United Nations!
Written by Molly MacCready, Executive Director
Dr. Natalie Hudson, director of the Human Rights Studies program at the University of Dayton, spoke as part of a panel this past Thursday at the United Nations on "The Role of Global Citizenship Education in the 2030 Agenda and Beyond." She shared with the panel the approach that UD's Human Rights program is taking as well as opportunities that are being made available for cross-cultural dialogue. And this is where CROSO comes in!
This semester, CROSO Scholars and UD students engaged in dialogue. The goal was for this to be an opportunity for engagement within a space of equality, without the overtones that too often exist in cross-cultural interactions of one group helping the other. Creating space for mutual learning and mutual teaching, this exchange was an opportunity for students from Uganda and America to share their values, challenges, daily life experiences, and cultural traditions.
We are beyond proud that our organization was mentioned at the U.N. this week, but we are also extremely grateful for the partnership that we have formed with the University of Dayton that encourages opportunities for students in both countries to grow in their role as global citizens. We also had three UD seniors who interned with CROSO this semester and look forward to continuing to work with UD students in the future.
