Terriers Take on the World

Conformity vs. Disobedience to Social Norms

by Dr. Brian Gregory

Together, we are resisting the status quo imposed by neoliberalism by dismantling false narratives of altruism and reclaiming spaces for community collaboration and empowerment. Globalization is “a spatial concept referring to a set of social processes that is transforming our present social condition of conventional nationality into one of globality.” (Manfred Steger, Globalization: A Very Short Introduction, 2). In NYC, volunteer and community service is an act of civil disobedience for those who want a more just, equitable, and compassionate world for all. Connected with New York Cares and other organizations, St. Francis College students took on the role of working with others through forming meaningful connections to promote empathy, solidarity, and cross-cultural learning to better understand the meaning of globalization.
