Globalization "takes place deep inside the 'regional', 'national', and 'local' domains... Global Studies scholars refer to this complex interplay between the global and the local/national as globalization. In short, globalization is really glocalization" (Manfred Steger, Globalization: A Very Short Introduction, 5th edition, 3).

Through a Global Communication’s class, students learned about many dimensions of globalization. Students were then inspired to take on volunteering projects where they established connections with several communities across New York City. From astounding stories to impressive achievements, students learned how globalization is apparent on the local level. These are their stories.
