Definition of “Global Learning for Engaged Citizenship”

An educational process that enhances one’s competencies for participating responsibly in the diverse, multicultural, international, and interdependent world.

KSU’s definition of global learning corresponds well with the one provided in a recently published working paper of ACE’s Global Learning for All project. Those national experts had this to say about global learning:

“...we define global learning as the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students acquire through a variety of experiences that enable them to understand world cultures and events, analyze global systems, appreciate cultural differences, and apply this knowledge and appreciation to their lives as citizens and workers.”
