Below are some student groups or student-focused activities that encourage global learning at UC Davis. These groups and activities stand out because they provide students with regular or ongoing opportunities to help students (1) examine actions and relationships that influence global systems from multiple perspectives—analyzing how complex systems impact self and others; (2) explore complex dimensions of diversity, equity, and inclusion around the world—including language, culture and identity; and/or (3) create strategies to apply knowledge, skills, and abilities to collaboratively and equitably foster global well-being and resilience.
If you know of a student group or activity who provides one or more of these global learning opportunities, please reach out to Paula Levitt, director of global experiential learning in the UC Davis Global Learning Hub, to suggest adding the group or activity to this page!
