The global pandemic has caused a reckoning of global challenges, shedding light on racial and social disparities in every fabric of society, such as healthcare and climate change. Now more than ever, we need globally minded leaders to rise to these global challenges. Steves will highlight how international travel is more than just site seeing and trying new foods, but an opportunity for students to be Global Citizens and make a positive difference in the world.<br />
