SUPERIOR, Wisc. - The University of Wisconsin, Superior (UWS) hosted events to teach students how to be globally aware.
"This week we put together a lot of activities designed to raise awareness about global issues and to get students involved and excited about issues related to other countries," said Ephaim Nkoi, a professor at UWS.
Global Awareness Week started Monday, Apr. 8. and will continue through Apr. 13.
Organizers say they hope this event will teach students about more than just how other cultures live.
"Understanding and having that knowledge of the way the globe works, the way other people live is an advantage for students," Nikoi said. "The world is canging very fast. I always say that, take an opportunity to learn about other cultures is a way to equip yourself for survival."
The event also gives students business advantages.
But the real take-away Nikoi said is the opportunity to connect to others across the globe.
"We will understand each other and there will be more peace between us which is really essential and something that the world needs," Nikoi said.
