"Students who have been reared in the United States must travel to other countries in order to experience the essential 'decentering' that comes from leaving home and looking back to assess and understand ones origins. As the planet grows smaller and its citizens become more interdependent, it is more important than ever for each of us to develop broad perspectives, skills and leadership that consider the population of the entire globe: this is the making of the global citizen."
-Dr. Robert M. Franklin '75, President of Morehouse College
