“Global” learning has been a catchword at St. Edward’s since the 2007 SACS accreditation process. But we didn’t invent the concept. Universities across the countryhave been discussing the idea for a while. As we consider innovative approaches to global learning in our courses and at St. Edward’s, we will connect our work to the broader national conversation about this concept.
- St. Edward’s Global Learning Mission Statement.
- St. Edward’s Global Learning Rubric
- AAC&U VALUE Rubric for Global Learning. (This rubric was developed with substantial input by St. Edward’s faculty & staff members David Blair, Mity Myhr, Bob Strong, and Christie Sample Wilson. )
