globalsl amasses evidence-based tools and peer-reviewed research to advance best practices in global learning, community-university partnership, & sustainable development. It is edited and overseen by researchers and practitioners who work with multiple methods and represent diverse fields, all concerned with the question of how to responsibly and ethically grow partnerships between educational institutions and communities.
Following the 2013 International Service-Learning Summit at Northwestern University, and building on a vision set forth at the first International Service-Learning Summit at Washington University in St. Louis, several institutions stepped forward to strengthen the development of globalsl.
Current sponsors include Cornell University, Duke University, and Northwestern University. Each of these institutions has demonstrated leadership and commitment by investing in this website as a space to accumulate existing research and best practice development at the nexus of global learning, community-university partnership, and sustainable development. Additional partners and friends include Child Family Health International, East Carolina University, Elon University, and Queens University of Charlotte.
