Global Scholars Host Film Series
Nash Community College’s Global Scholars Program kicked off its Spring Semester Global Events this week with the “Conflicts and Casualties – Syria” Film Series.
Students, faculty and staff viewed “Can’t Do Nothing: Refugees in Lesbos” a short film in which Verizon actress Milana Vayntrub shares her “can’t do nothing” mission to raise awareness and humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees. “White Helmets” was also shown. The short documentary highlights a group of unflinching first responders who risk their lives to rescue victims from the rubble as daily airstrikes pound civilian targets in Syria.
Students in Nash Community College’s Global Scholars Program are developing global competencies and skills needed to be successful in today’s economy. Now in its third year, through scholarship and experiential learning, the program focuses on instilling what it means to be a global citizen and how students can apply this knowledge to their academic and professional endeavors.
Upon completion of all program requirements, NCC students earn the identification of “Global Scholar” on their NCC transcript and receive special regalia to wear at commencement exercises.
The Global Scholars Program is a collaboration between NCC and UNC World View
