Campus Models of Defining and Designing Global Learning Opportunities

As institutions have advanced global learning across curricular and co-curricular initiatives, they have been guided by the creation of institutional definitions of global learning, global learning outcomes, and broad student learning outcomes with global dimensions.

As part of AAC&U’s global learning initiatives, we have focused on integrated global learning for institutions of all types reflecting our membership.  We have collected institutional examples of global learning definitions, global learning outcomes and broad student learning outcomes with global dimensions.

Definitions of Global Learning
As institutions seek to be more intentional about their global learning, many institutions have guiding definitions of global learning. 

Global Learning Outcomes
Many institutions have identified global learning outcomes to identify what a global learner can do.

Student Learning Outcomes
Some institutions have created broad learning outcomes for all students that include a global focus.
