I have the honor and privilege of leading an international group of physical therapy students from both UIW and Instituto Profesional en Terapias y Humanidades during an annual week-long mission in Oaxaca. Global citizenship is the idea that all persons have rights and civic responsibilities that come with being a member of the World, with whole-world philosophy and sensibilities. The idea is that one’s identity transcends geography or political borders and that responsibilities or rights are derived from membership in a broader class: “humanity”. My experience in Oaxaca and practice of global citizenship directly informs my classroom facilitation as well as my clinical practice and service to the local community here in San Antonio and across the border.
