Staff supports cultural awareness

staff editorial

Living in an affluent suburb, it is often easy to say that everything a student needs is right here. However, no education is complete without a global perspective of the world.

The importance of having a global perspective, one which emphasizes reaching out to other cultures, is a vital part of any student’s experience. This can be seen in the story Seeking Scotland, as 15 UAHS students took advantage of the opportunity to immerse themselves in the traditions and language of another country.

Through this program, as well as several other exchange programs at UAHS, students have the opportunity to learn firsthand the traditions and customs of a world unlike their own.

However, it is equally essential that students embrace diversity in their daily lives. With the inclusion of a varied population, students have a better learning environment in which to discuss ideas and to contribute their own experiences to an ever-growing and amazing global conversation.
