Between Humility & Hope: Charting a Course for Ethical Global Action
Dr. Eric Hartman, visiting professor at Providence College and former executive director of Amizade, will be the featured fall speaker at our Global Citizenship Speakers’ Series sponsored by global@becker. All students, staff, and community members are invited.
As a writer, educator, and nonprofit executive director, he has worked for many years to advance efforts that are “rooted in the reality we have, but visionary in terms of imagining then creating a better tomorrow.” His publications on global service-learning, global citizenship, and fair trade learning have spanned edited volumes, peer-reviewed journals in service-learning and international development, and popular and trade magazines such as International Educator.
His passion for the ideals of US Democracy is reflected in his recent contribution to the Michigan Journal of Community Service-Learning, “No Values, No Democracy: The Essential Partisanship of a Civic Engagement Movement.” He serves as Editor of the Building a Better World Forum for Global Service-Learning.
