Join members of the Global Engagement in the Liberal Arts Conference Community, along with the Community-based Global Learning Collaborative and the Haverford College Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, for this important and current conversation.

In the name of education that is enriching, engaging and relevant both with respect to students’ trajectories and in terms of understanding and addressing 21st Century Challenges, faculty, staff, students and community partners have worked to better  align interdisciplinary global engagement programs. During this opportunity for connection and conversation we will hear from a range of faculty, staff, and administrative voices who have made progress on these efforts at selective liberal arts institutions. 

Each presenting team will have 10-minutes to share a deliberately concise summary of (a) institutional changes they’ve made to advance local-global-curricular-experiential engagement, (b) challenges they’re currently sitting with, and (c) next steps or opportunities that excite them most in this kind of work. Following these presentations, the community gathered will have an opportunity for a short break, followed by one-hour of facilitated discussion regarding how institutions can continue to build momentum for these kinds of programmatic efforts and related institutional changes.
