Global Scholars Diploma: The Beginning of a New Academic Year

October 23, 2019

By: Hannah Meyer

The Global Scholars year began on September 4th with nearly 300 Year 3 students attending an orientation workshop to begin work on their Take Action projects, the capstone to the Global Scholars Diploma program where students choose a global issue and implement a local tangible solution in their communities. This year we have welcomed our largest cohort of Global Scholars ever, at 1200 students across all 3 years.


Throughout the month of September first-year Global Scholars students attended cultural dialogue events, where they participated in conversations with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. The conversations focused on customs, beliefs, perspectives, and the role culture plays in everyday life. Speakers from 18 different nationalities and cultures spoke at these events, exposing students to perspectives from Russia, China, Mauritania, Pakistan, Venezuela, and many more.


This month and next our Year 1 and Year 2 students will travel to the Honda Heritage Center and Nestle R&D to explore Global Careers.


This Fall, Pickerington Global Scholars also had the opportunity to take a field trip to Molly Caren Agricultural Center with the Ohio Farm Bureau to learn about agriculture as a career path. Click here to read more.
