October 16-18, 2014
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Register by September 2 for best conference rates.

At AAC&U's 2013 Global Learning in College meeting, more than 500 participants laid the foundations for a vibrant community of practice sharing insights, opportunities, and challenges. At the 2014 Global Learning in College meeting, participants will continue to articulate a vision of the global learner and will explore efforts to design educational experiences—across the curriculum and in the community—to help students develop the cross-cutting capacities they need. Domains to be addressed include global knowledge, global challenges, global systems and organizations, global civic engagement, and global identities.

Featured Presentations Include:

Keynote Address: Global Learners, Global Learning: Characteristics and Pedagogies
Sue J. Goldie, Director of Harvard Global Health Institute and the Roger Lee Irving Professor of Public Health, Harvard University

Plenary: Creating Sites for Global Learning and Global Citizenship
Jochen Fried, Director of Education and David Goldman, Associate Director of Education—both of Salzburg Global Seminar; and Yolanda Moses, Professor of Anthropology, Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity and Excellence—University of California, Riverside

Plenary: Students' Stories: Influential Experiences and Turning Points in Global Learning

In addition to a full roster of concurrent sessions and plenary presentations, AAC&U also offers practical Pre-Conference Workshops—three hours of active learning with some of higher education's leading innovators in developing strategies, practices, and policies that lead to student success.
