Global Citizenship in Place, For our Time: Community-based Global Learning Institute

May 16, 2018

Global Citizenship in Place, For our Time:

Community-based Global Learning Institute

Content Overview and Agenda

The 10th Annual institute will proceed through thematic focus on the relationship of engaged learning to categories of citizenship and inclusion, through variously contested spaces, in our current political moment. The Institute is for faculty, administrators, practitioners, community partners, and researchers who are interested in better engaging global service-learning. It is uniquely designed to be collaborative, open, and participatory. For two and a half days, participants will think deeply with sector academic and practitioner leaders, and consider innovative approaches in community-based global learning. Past attendees have found the intimate retreat-style format offers opportunities for in-depth conversation, quality feedback, and network-building.

This will be the inaugural Institute on the West Coast and will be hosted on the University of San Diego Campus.  Considering USD’s proximity to the border, the institute will engage participants in a deep dive of global service-learning as it pertains to this border region.  Themes to explore will include immigration, neo-colonialism, engaging diverse student populations, civic engagement and citizenship.
