Global Classroom

Global Classroom is a collaboration between the World Affairs Council Tacoma, the University of Washington Tacoma's Institute for Global Engagement and the Division of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs.

The interactive speaker series is intended to explore in-depth issues of global significance and their local implications. These moderated conversations will feature leading practitioners and scholars, who will shed light on the complexities of global events and help us understand the influence of these events in the South Sound.

You can view some photos from the February 2018 Global Classroom here and view video of the event in its entirety here.
