For the past several years, Allegheny College has come together around an annual theme—focusing our attention and our programming on a single, broad idea or concept. For the 2010-11 academic year, our theme is Global Citizenship. We are bringing speakers and artists to campus to enlarge our understanding and awareness of what it means to be a citizen in an increasingly globalized world.

Along with these invited guests, we will explore what it means to be a citizen of the world within the context of our common humanity. At the same time, the year is a celebration of cultural differences and the unique role that we all play in our modern world.
