Arkansas Global Changemakers is a project aimed at bringing communities together to enhance local solutions to global challenges. Participating faculty and students work alongside organizations, governments, and businesses in Arkansas to place pressing social issues into global context and to enter into dialogue with communities around the world facing similar challenges.

We discuss a global classroom that includes students in Bangalore, India, and in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that focuses on finding solutions to common problems, building cultural competency, and on social innovation in the biomedical field.
