Each year, North Central College turns its attention to a particular global issue in order to examine it in the cultures of particular regions of the world. This year, the College is continuing a 3-year series, "Global Human Rights." Several classes across the curriculum will be devoting attention to this focus, while co-curricular events (lectures, films, concerts, and art exhibits) will take place each term. The year will culminate with a special symposium in winter term devoted to poverty reduction. Students are encouraged to enroll in these specially designated classes, many of which fulfill general education requirements.


Each year, the College turns its attention to one culture, theme, or region of the world, encouraging students to take courses and participate in activities related to that focus. For 2013-14, Global Human Rights will be the focus of this collaboration. Students may choose courses that will consider Global Human Rights from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including art, biology, communication, English, French, literature, philosophy, political science, psychology, religious studies, and sociololgy and anthropology.
