Global Education for All Updates
As we address the impact of COVID-19 we acknowledge that though we may be temporarily restricted in our location, our world is still interconnected, our well-being still relies upon interdependence, and our challenges and opportunities are still global in scope. It is therefore critically important that our teaching and learning includes global and intercultural experiences—and that we continue to expand avenues beyond traditional study abroad, such as online course content or virtual international collaborations.
As faculty and students are gearing up for online courses and wonder about how to strengthen global and international collaborations in the present context, Global Affairs has gathered a set of resources to help faculty connect with others around the world and support students in becoming global thinkers and learners.
January, February, and March were busy months for Global Education for All! Our inaugural cohort of Global Education for All Fellows has been ﬁnalizing projects to extend global learning on campus. The Global Education for All Steering Committee worked on various projects including reﬁning global learning outcomes, crafting an associated minor, and designing campus-wide advising partnerships. In addition, we co-convened with the Internship and Career Center, Public Scholarship and Engagement, the undergraduate STEM initiative and the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, a discussion about holding the Future of Experiential Learning. We hosted our second Global Education for All Advisory Council meeting to discuss how we can philanthropically support for our goal to provide 100% of our undergraduate, graduate, and professional students with global learning opportunities that change their lives and our world. UC Davis was also ranked as a top producer of U.S. Fulbright Scholars and continues to be ranked among the top producers of Peace Corps Volunteers. We have a lot of excitement around Global Education for All and hope you enjoy reading about our recent achievements, events, projects and Global Aggies.
