How do I take full advantage of my Spelman liberal education, the Spelman MILE? What overarching goal should I set?

Work to become a Free Thinking Woman!

The Spelman Free Thinking Woman

1. The Free Thinking woman is not restricted by artificial and socially constructed boundaries and barriers that separate knowledge from experience.

The SpelmanMILE

When and Where I Enter: Becoming a Global Citizen means:

Recognizing that you are a member of a large, diverse social fabric that is local, national and global

Considering local and global social problems to be at least partly your own

Seeking the knowledge and experience to make informed judgments, engage difference, and seek the common good

Taking informed action when appropriate, for the common good

How your international travel is part of your Spelman liberal education, the Spelman MILE

How your international travel helps you develop the qualities of the Spelman Free Thinking Woman
