Global awareness is having a sense of what’s out there, knowing what can’t be put in a textbook, essay, or white paper. It places humanity and justice in the center of self-discovery and learning. Students and faculty fold global awareness into daily learning and life at Moses Brown.
In partnership with the Swearer Center at Brown University, Moses Brown students apply their best analytical and creative thinking to the real-world challenges faced by local entrepreneurs. Serving as a consulting corps, they work on real problems faced by local business owners, conducting field research, analyzing data, and offering creative ideas to help them succeed. To do this work, we host guest speakers and visit businesses to see how their challenges play out in the real world.
In learning about the global convergence of European power over the last millennia, we draw students’ attention to the voices often left out of history books. We talk about the cultures and nations that were displaced, and how these dynamics shape the way we see the world.Inquire
