Detailed Description

 

Vision. The ultimate aim of this Global Connections Community is to support the success of international and domestic UMR students who will infuse the health care field with their intercultural competence, global citizenship, and commitment to solving global health challenges.

Objectives: As a resident of the UMR Global Connections Community, you will:

  • Actively participate in creating a positive living, learning community.
  • Develop and demonstrate curiosity for intercultural learning and varied international perspectives.
  • Demonstrate commitment to initiating and maintaining intercultural relationships.
  • Engage in opportunities to understand and embrace cultural differences within your living learning community, managing conflict constructively (with assistance, as needed).
  • Participate in weekly community gatherings, to share your perspective and continue your intercultural and global learning.
  • Further develop your self- identity as a future health care professional and global citizen.
  • Increase your tolerance of ambiguity, empathy, and cognitive complexity – all necessary components of intercultural and global competence.
  • Be civically engaged in endeavors that reveal local-global connections in health care.
  • Maintain the UMR Student Code of Conduct.
  • Maintain good academic standing.
  • Document utilization of UMR student resources, including academic support via Just Ask and other faculty office hour visits; disability resources, if needed; wellness support and ongoing stress management activities; and regular coaching from Student Success Coaches and Global Connections staff.
  • Thrive, as a student, and ultimately, a health care professional.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
