GCP Keystone Course Highlights Contemporary Slavery, Human Trafficking
Students held on-campus activities to raise awareness of the issues.

As part of their Global Citizenship Program keystone course, "Contemporary Slavery and Human Trafficking," students at Webster Geneva reflected on the forms of modern slavery and how it is often hidden in plain sight.

Their class final project examined different aspects of slavery in the supply chain, and surveyed members of the campus community to inform -- and surprise -- them about the kinds of products they consume that are supported by slave labor.

See student reflections from the course, taught by Richard Randell, PhD, in this post at Webster Geneva. A graphic of their final project, examining four specific areas of slavery in supply chains, can be viewed here [PDF].
