Global Learning

“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.
