Engage students in exploring and understanding issues of global significance.
We do this from a multiplicity of perspectives and with critical thinking at the forefront.
Help students prepare for the work of the 21st century.
This shows up in both hard skills like digital collaboration, in addition to soft skill development, like how to work collaboratively across cultures.
Provide students with avenues for action.
First, through detailed examples of how others have created change in their communities; and secondly, by structuring experiences so that students are creating solutions to the problems they encounter.
