Global Citizenship


The goal of the Global Citizenship LLC is to empower residents to become aware of the different cultures and customs that help shape the global community.

Fast Facts:

The Global Citizenship LLC is in partnership with the Center for Global Engagement.  In this LLC, students engage in programs that connect to international society. If you are looking for a place that supports your desire to become more aware of global topics, then this LLC is for you! 

All LLC students in Coughlin take a First-Year Seminar (FYS) together related to their LLC theme! FYSs invite students to explore how we pursue knowledge and cultivate understanding. Seminar classes change year to year and accepted LLC students will be asked to indicate their preference.
