GNED 500

One of the key initiatives of Centennial’s Signature Learning Experience is our college-mandated General Education course titled Global Citizenship: From Social Analysis to Social Action (GNED 500) for which this textbook is written. This material provides students with the skills, knowledge and education that will allow them to achieve a global, social justice consciousness, while meeting employers’ expectations for graduates who understand diversity and equity in the workplace.

Our Stories

Led by a diverse team of Indigenous and non-Indigenous creators, Our Stories: First Peoples in Canada is a unique multi-media resource developed with Indigenous peoples from across Canada. Eliciting an unsettling of Western authority, this free eTextbook encourages recognition that moves beyond a colonial lens.
