Raise your hand if you think you need to know about people and places around the world, in order to know how best create change?
Yeah, our hand is up too.
Here at Pacific, we believe that changing the world should be integrated into your everyday life; the way you live, the way you do everything, should reflect the type of world that you want to have. This means that one of the four cornerstones for your time at Pacific is International and Diverse Perspectives.
We believe that, in order to effect true world change, we all need to continually increase our awareness of and competency with diverse cultures. If we know more about different people and cultures, then we can better know how to make the world a better place for all, even just in our day-to-day interactions.
Sounds great, right?
We think so too. Here’s how we do it:
· Pro-social clubs and organizations, like Black Student Union, which are open to all students for participation.
· On and off campus events that extend your cultural horizons, whether it be a panel on gender and sexuality diversity, or a serve day on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
· Study abroad, and immerse yourself in another culture, learning the about the issues most pertinent to that part of the earth.
And if that’s not enough, your cultural horizons will be expanded just by showing up to class. We offer classes that emphasize diverse thinking in everything from Anthropology to Art, and everything in between. If you want to learn how to think more inclusively, and you want to do it through a Music, we even offer that.
