Taking steps toward producing global citizens:

La Sierra University is committed to producing graduates grounded in a spiritual, intellectual, and social community who are global citizens informed by faith and learning. LSU, as with academia in general, is coming to recognize that in strategic planning for recruitment, for retention, and for general education curriculum design, offering interna-tional study tours effectively contributes in preparing students for citizenship in an ever shrinking planet.

Study tours offered by LSU evidence the University’s commitment to take students beyond the classroom and to experience learning in global contexts. “The need to think globally is not reserved for would be diplomats or for students in international business,” noted LSU President Randal Wisbey. “The need to think globally ideally impacts every academic discipline, and La Sierra’s international study tours plant seeds for looking beyond one’s inherited culture context and comfort zone.”
