Participants will share how they are connecting institutional leadership with curricular and cocurricular options to ensure that all students experience global learning, using place as a lens through which to understand the world. They will examine how these campus-wide approaches can become part of the institutional fabric, and how faculty and staff are prepared, supported, and incentivized to provide students with opportunities to apply their skills in a variety of settings, at increasingly challenging levels. Together, we will interrogate how institutions are connecting their campuses with communities across the street or around the globe in response to pressing issues of global concern.
We aim to ensure that students are prepared to enhance the well-being of local and global communities and succeed in the workforce through collaboration with individuals from diverse disciplinary and cultural backgrounds, drawing on knowledge from traditional and nontraditional spaces.
