SPEAKER: Gayle Beebe, President of Westmont College. Introduction by Steve Baker. Global Imperative. Dr. Beebe gave us a peek into the workings of the Westmont Global Imperative education program. The program consists of sending students abroad for a semester to have a global expierence. Students must attend the Pre-trip classes and Reentry classes as part of the experience. A goal of the program is to educate students in global awareness and how to read social cues and act appropriately in another culture. Dr. Beebe stated that Americans have been criticized for their lack of global awareness. The Westmont program aims to give their students this awareness so as to be successful entrepreneurs in the global market. Forbes magazine ranked Westmont as the 10th Most Entrepreneurial College in the nation. Congratulations.

Thank you to Gayle for sharing about Westmont’s Global Imperative Program. The Friday Social Hour for May 20 at 5:30 is at the Crocodile, corner of State and Alamar.
