The World Issues Forums of Fairhaven College of Interdisciplinary Studies is dedicated to providing thought provoking educational opportunities to the campus and Bellingham community that support an informed and engaged global citizenry.
The World Issues Forums occur weekly on Wednesdays from 12:00-1:30pm each quarter. How do you get to the Fairhaven Auditorium? Directions & Map >
An expansion of the forums, Paths to Global Justice is a collaborative effort of several campus departments to strengthen interdisciplinary international education at Western Washington University by inviting scholars to address global justice issues.
An optional and repeatable four-credit class (FAIR 210a World Issues Forums) accompanies the forums. Students explore varied media information sources related to the topics, learn to digest and question what they read and hear, and are consistently challenged to act for positive social change.
