In the late 1500s, a beloved Jesuit by the name of Jerome Nadal, S. J. proclaimed that for Jesuits and their apostolic works, “the world is our house.” Global Education Certificate recipients will be testament to a shared vision and mission like our founding Jesuits before us.
The Global Education Certificate is set to empower students from their earliest career stage at De Smet Jesuit to pursue an expansion of their world view of global issues and experiences, and to allow our men for others the opportunity to see this world and those issues with an investigative eye focusing on communication, innovation, resource responsibility, and ethical stewardship. The certificate will be given to extraordinary seniors each year upon the completion of requirements.
Students who wish to pursue the Global Education Certificate should identify themselves to the Global Education Center as early in their De Smet Jesuit career as possible, but no later than the first semester of senior year. The Global Education Center, along with the assistant principal for academics, will assist students in completing the Global Education Certificate path, creating an academic plan, extracurricular activities, the student’s off-campus experience, and a presentation/project/paper requirement to facilitate earning the award.
