Think Global, Act Local

The primary purpose of the Indiana University Southeast Common Experience Program is to develop a common dialogue among students, faculty, staff, and members of the local communities. The theme or dialogue for 2018-19 is “THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL.”

There are many ways to participate in the Common Experience. One may attend some or all of our numerous programs and events scheduled over the course of the academic year. These programs are designed to allow you to focus on the importance of thinking globally and acting locally. One may also read our common text Where Am I Wearing? by Kelsey Timmerman and engage in book discussions in either the fall or spring semesters. Students can register in almost 40 courses that have assigned the common reading as part of the class. Faculty members, staff members, and members of the community are invited and encouraged to purchase the book, read it, and participate in one of the book discussions. All are invited to hear the author of Where Am I Wearing?, Kelsey Timmerman, who will be speaking on campus at 6:00pm on Monday, October 22 in the STEM Auditorium in the Ogle Center.

All are welcome and encouraged to come and participate in our on-going dialogue “THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL.”
