Global Awareness Society International
The Global Awareness Society International, Inc. is a non-profit organization composed of
people and organizations of various backgrounds that recognize that the world is no longer
made up of independent nations and cultures. This technological induced change affects everyone. We, as an organization, wish to explore the exciting potential that globalization of the
world’s cultures and societies presents to each and every one of us as citizens of this planet.
Established in 1991, our membership includes both academic and non-academic based professionals and individuals from various organizations and nations including the United States.
Globalization has made possible what was once merely a vision: the peoples of our world united under the roof of one Global Village. Yet, despite increasing interdependence, human conflicts continue to blemish the landscape of our planet. We believe that a vital step toward
achieving peace, harmony, and cooperation among the diverse peoples of our globe is to promote mutual understanding and appreciation for one another. Global Awareness Society International strives to turn a global vision into global reality.
Purposes of the Global Awareness Society International

To promote awareness of the diversity of cultures within our community.

To enhance our understanding of the political, economic, social, demographic, technological, and environmental issues among members of the global community.

To increase sensitivity to issues related to rapid globalization.

To develop a mutual support network of scholars, professionals, interested people
and organizations.

To provide multiple forums for the exchange of research, knowledge, and expertise
on people oriented issues related to globalization.

To help people recognize the diversity and interdependence of the globe’s peoples
and the process of globalization.

To develop and expand the number of national or regional Global Awareness Societies under the direction of the G.A.S.I. to pursue our common goals.

Message from the President of the
Global Awareness Society International
Dr. Geoffrey Palmer
Bowie State University
Department of Counseling
It is an honor and a privilege to welcome you to the Global Awareness Society International’s (GASI) 24th annual conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Whether you are
a student attending your first GASI meeting, or one of the founding members, your participation and contribution are invaluable to fulfilling the mission of our organization.
This year’s conference theme “Freedom, Liberty, and Humanity in a World of SocioEconomic Disparity” represents the multidisciplinary academic pursuit to address many
of the difficult global issues through the varying expertise and skill sets of our membership.
The impact of globalization has reached every corner of the world and has touched the
lives of billions of people. Access to life sustaining needs, health care, and education
is now being viewed as a basic human right instead of a privilege. Despite these
changing attitudes in our societies, there is still the harsh reality that the rapid globalization the world is experiencing is no cure for many populations enduring oppression,
covert racism, marginalized political representation, and growing economic disparities.
Societal ills are continuously unfolding worldwide. The citizens of the world have witnessed the alarming prevalence of the use of deadly force by police in the United
States, the ongoing conflicts that diminish the opportunity for peace in the Middle East,
the lack of interest in migrants’ welfare by many of the European Union’s governments,
and the imbalanced trade and economic relations that first world powers maintain with
small countries such as those in the Caribbean. These issues represent only a fraction
of the problems that people are facing throughout the globe. It is important to note that
the struggles of our brothers and sisters in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania are
not overlooked.
As GASI’s president, I am proud that many of these international and interpersonal
concerns have been studied by our scholars and will be presented during the conference. I encourage all participants to pursue sessions outside of their respective academic disciplines and to engage in dialogue with researchers from other fields of study.
Exposing ourselves to new topics and methods of investigating issues related to globalization is a hallmark of the GASI experience and represents one of our core values:
“to promote awareness.”
Geoffrey Palmer
GASI President (2014–2016)

Chancellor Frank T. Brogan
Keynote Speaker at the 24th Annual Conference of
the Global Awareness Society International
May 22, 2015 in Philadelphia at the Inn at Penn
Mr. Frank T. Brogan became the fourth chancellor of the
Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education on October 1, 2013. A
lifelong educator, Mr. Brogan previously served as chancellor of the
State University System of Florida, was president of Florida Atlantic
University and was twice elected lieutenant governor of the state of
Florida.
As PASSHE’s chancellor, Mr. Brogan serves as the State System’s
chief executive officer, which operates 14 comprehensive universities
with a combined enrollment of nearly 115,000 students. The chancellor
works with the Board of Governors to recommend and develop overall
policies for the System.
Mr. Brogan began his academic career as a teacher at Port Salerno
Elementary School in Martin County, Fla. After working his way up
through the Martin County School System—including serving six years
as superintendent—he was elected Florida’s Commissioner of Education in 1995. As commissioner,
he spearheaded passage of a law to strengthen criminal background checks for all educators and
led the effort to establish the Bright Futures Scholarship Program.
He continued his advocacy of education issues as lieutenant governor — steering education policy
as legislative liaison for Governor Jeb Bush. Upon assuming the presidency of Florida Atlantic
University in 2003, Mr. Brogan’s top priority was to elevate academic standards at the institution,
which resulted in stricter admissions criteria, higher retention rates and improved time-to-degree. He
also helped raise more than $120 million in private funds and matching grants for the university,
while increasing its focus on research and establishing a four-year medical education program.
Mr. Brogan was named chancellor of the State University System of Florida in 2009, and
immediately went to work to successfully repair strained relationships between the System and the
Florida Legislature. As chancellor, he led the development of a new strategic plan that includes 39
distinct benchmarks — an integral part of Florida’s nationally recognized accountability framework
that tracks progress of university and system goals.
Mr. Brogan also led the Florida system’s efforts to develop a performance funding program with
goals similar to those of PASSHE’s nationally recognized model. The program utilizes key
measures to reward universities for excellence and improved performance in areas that support
both the institutions’ unique missions and system-wide goals for improved quality, accessibility and
accountability.
A native of Ohio, Mr. Brogan was the first member of his family to attend college, earning a
bachelor's degree in education (magna cum laude) from the University of Cincinnati and a master's
degree in education from Florida Atlantic University. He and his wife Courtney have a son,
Colby John.
