The conference titled “The Search for a New Global Balance: America’s Changing Role in the World” was held Sept. 24-29, 2015.
Gilde said, “I want to bring back what I learn and teach it in my classrooms in order to expose my student to diverse experiences and ideas.”
The seminar discussed how modern America acts, reacts and interacts with other countries and what effects that has on our universities and education system.
“It was a lot of hard, concentrated work,” Gilde said, “but realistic and effective changes are accomplished, which is hard to come across these days.”
Gilde learned about the global significance of the Seminar from Montana Western Chancellor Beth Weatherby who attended the the Seminar in 1993 to discuss the importance of education's sustainability.
The Salzburg Global Seminar has taken place in the three hundred-year-old castle of Schloss Leopoldskron since 1947, the filming location of "The Sound of Music" in 1964.
The seminar is described as a place for current and future leaders to solve issues of global concern. The goal is to instill meaningful and effective global change by posing the underlying questions that hold the key to human progress and kickstart conversations and connections that will continue beyond the seminar.
