The University Chair in Critical Thinking has enhanced the abilities of CSB/SJU faculty for more than a decade, leading them on various international seminars. Past trips have included a visit to Croatia, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina (2003). While there, faculty studied the history and culture of the region and current social, political and economic issues affecting the area. The purpose of the initiative was to grant selected faculty the opportunity to explore global issues of conflict, human rights and international intervention within a specific historical and cultural context and thereby enrich the classroom across the curriculum.
