What is Global Learning?

"Global Learning is a critical analysis of and an engagement with complex, interdependent global systems and legacies (such as natural, physical, social, cultural, economic, and political) and their implications for people’s lives and the earth’s sustainability. Through global learning, students should

  1. become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences,
  2. seek to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities, and
  3. address the world’s most pressing and enduring issues collaboratively and equitably."
