Glocal Community Engagement
Barry prides itself in the scope of student community involvement performed each year. HPLS supports its School’s value of “Excellence in teaching and engaged learning and in collaboration with communities.”
The School values a strong sense of ethics, personal and social responsibility through reflection, and a search for knowledge with a glocal (global through local) perspective. We also value a holistic approach to addressing the challenges of society, focusing on the importance of human action as a contributor to solutions, communication as a vehicle for integrity and justice, excellence in teaching and engaged learning, and in collaboration with communities.
We encourage our students to be involved in the South Florida Community by including engaged learning within our course curricula, athletic programs, and campus recreation strategies. We commend their work in making a difference.
