Empowering Women



The Allegheny College Global Citizen Scholars (GCS) Program is for students who are interested in unpacking a complex global challenge through interdisciplinary coursework and experiential fieldwork at Allegheny College, and ultimately, designing a legacy project with sustainable outcomes.

Our wonderful incoming Cohort IV of Global Citizen Scholars have cobbled together their first video challenge this summer, overcoming the challenges of access to technology, varying technical skills, and geographical distance. They were asked to talk about a female leader or inspirational figure that they admire. Here are a few of the individual clips. You can see the complete collation of submissions here. We're thrilled at the diversity of responses. It's a great start to a year in which we will discuss women change-makers from around the world.
