The statewide Mark M. Welter World Citizen Awards recognize Minnesota State Colleges and University students who exemplify an understanding of the interconnected world in which they live and exemplify the thoughts, words, and actions demanded of a 21st-century world citizen.
Dr. Mark M. Welter taught history in the Robbinsdale Area School District for nearly 30 years and also was an adjunct history professor at St. Cloud State University. Dr. Welter has shown his love and commitment to increase the awareness of global historians’ belief that today’s problems and potential are borderless realities that cannot be met with an ‘us vs. them’ approach and the world is increasingly, inexorably, and undeniably interdependent.
