Global Stewardship

Category: Academics

Global stewardship is our overarching principle. It effectively links our international and environmental emphasis and conveys all four of our core values; respect, responsibility, solutions and service. CIS students learn to think and link globally by encouraging actual connections with other cultures; to act locally, by encouraging solutions and service-oriented action; and impact globally, that through many local acts we can impact the globe.
