Global Community Initiative

Students who validate and appreciate different perspectives from across the United States and around the world are best prepared to meet the ever-changing needs of our diverse global society.

In support of Cardigan’s mission, the Global Community Initiative (GCI) enhances awareness of our multicultural world and develops the skills to be successful in it.

Boys from every grade participate in a weekly Global Leadership class where they gain new insights about different social identities and develop inclusive leadership skills such as critical thinking, effective communication, and innovative problem solving. Each month the entire community also explores a geographic location and observes cultural, religious, and educational holidays from around the world. In addition, our service learning projects, annual conference, international trips, and guest speaker presentations further enrich learning. Lastly, GCI provides ongoing professional development and consultation to enhance the incorporation of global issues into the core curriculum and throughout the residential life experience.
