CALL FOR ”SHOCKING” SUBMISSIONS
“A sense of confusion and uncertainty sometimes with feelings of anxiety that may affect people exposed to an alien culture or environment without adequate preparation”- Merriam-Webster Dictionary
The Marshall University World Council organization and the Office of Intercultural Affairs is now in the early planning stages of developing a unique social learning experience referred to as Culture Shock. Culture Shock will enable students to grow and learn from the experiences of others in preparation to living peacefully with others in a global and culturally diverse society. We intend to offer this program on campus to students, faculty and the community during the Spring 2018 semester.
Therefore, we are searching for 4-6 students to share their unique culturally diverse experiences during their time at Marshall University that you believe will have strong educational or multicultural awareness value to others. Please submit a brief summary of a positive or negative event(s) or experience that occurred during your time at Marshall due to cultural differences, for which you felt strongly about to give a brief, 2-3 minute presentation during the program, for which we will provide you with all of the details. We will make final selections from among the most powerful and influential entries to include in spring 2018 launch of Culture Shock.
