CSIG Goes Glocal

CHP Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of “glocal” programs.

A “Glocal” Experiential Learning Opportunity is an experience (observation/interaction/ community service) - sustained or one-time - with individuals of (a) different culture(s) in the NY Tri-State area with the specific goal to develop cross-cultural understanding and cultural intelligence.
