Published on

Ms. Phelan will discuss the importance of social responsibility and global citizenship with a specific focus on the traditional stages of life: learning, earning, and returning. Rather than approaching each stage consecutively, Phelan suggests they must be pursued in concert. She will also discuss the importance of a global education that connects students, not just academically, but emotionally, to the deep challenges faced by those in the developing world.
