Students Needed to Change the World!


Staff report

Students interested in improving others’ lives, changing the world or simply making new friends may want to consider joining Students for Global Citizenship (S4GC).
Members are active in events that bring about awareness of global issues, such as food insecurity, climate change and global health both on campus and beyond.
The club, which over many years has consistently taken impactful action to make a difference, is seeking both new general members and officers. The group meets from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every other Thursday via Zoom and in person, as activities dictate.
Stated club purposes include: improving the lives of others by promoting human rights, empowering students to act and raise awareness about global issues and creating educational opportunities, such as speaker presentations, workshops, panels, and taking action.
The Club has had great energy in the past and has helped raise awareness about sweatshops, lack of clean water sources, hunger, educational inequalities, immigration issues, public health issues and environmental issues. Members have raised funds for numerous local organizations and built a water well in Sierra Leone, purchased goats and cows for impoverished families in Rwanda and assisted a faculty member in Ghana to come to the US for training.
S4GC has also visited the United Nations, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and Washington, D.C. Adviser Dr. Terry Konn reminds students that “opportunities to make a difference are plentiful!”
Anyone interested in joining or becoming an officer should contact Konn at
