About One World Initiative

Welcome to One World Initiative!

This program is designed to help everyone in the Sacramento State community recognize how interdependent our world really is.

Each year, the One World Initiative committee will select a new theme through which to explore our global interconnectedness. Our hope is that members of the Sac State community will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for how our actions affect others and how what happens in distant locales affects our lives here. For the 2018-2019 year, the One World Initiative committee was chosen Time to be discussed through different global perspectives. We envision a myriad of ways in which these lessons can be taught and we look forward to sharing these opportunities with the local community, as well.

What is the One World Initiative?

In preparing Sacramento State students for their futures as citizens of the world, it is imperative that we provide them with opportunities to develop their understanding of the world in which they live, to adopt a genuine and authentic global perspective on the issues we all face.  The Provost's advisory committee on Curricular Global Engagement  developed the following statement, emphasizing Sacramento State's commitment to providing students with a global education:

"Sacramento State is committed to developing, sustaining and  promoting  global studies, international educational exchanges and research initiatives, in support of the university’s commitment to the preparation of informed world citizens. The University strives to provide students and faculty with the multidisciplinary, intercultural and ethical understandings necessary to engage, lead and prosper in a variety of settings requiring knowledge and problem solving skills in a diverse, global arena."
