Dalton Global Initiatives (DGI) provides students with rigorous, individualized experiences that cultivate global leadership and promote understanding and responsibility in the world community.
Through DGI, students are encouraged to take action for a more just world community, to engage in multi-cultural and multi-perspective thought processes, to achieve fluency in foreign languages which facilitates full participation in the global experience, to integrate themselves into new surroundings as members of local communities, and to appreciate different perspectives, traditions and practices of those around them.
To that end, DGI seeks to engage students in three integral forms of global experiences:
- Academic collaborations
- Language and cultural immersion opportunities
- Service learning programs
