Opening Minds In Peru

By Melissa Bordow

"I returned from this program this past summer having realized that not only did student perspectives change; they matured in their sense of responsibility. Their minds opened in terms of what it means to be a global citizen, what it means to analyze personal beliefs and perspectives, and in recognizing the essential role of cultural competence in their professional and personal lives."

Aliria Munoz, clinical professor, College of Nursing and Health Innovation (CONHI), who developed the college’s first global curriculum and study-abroad program. Her work was aided by donors Dr. John and Suzanne Hensing, who created the Hensing Scholarship to enable students from all economic backgrounds to study cross-cultural health care education.
