Innovations in Education

Getting a Global I.Q.

How will we teach students to ask new questions?

Marquette is one of 16 universities chosen by the Association of American Colleges and Universities to participate in a two-year project committed to injecting opportunities for global learning in undergraduate education. The project called Shared Futures: Global Learning and Responsibility, is designed to place questions of diversity, identity, citizenship and responsible action at the center of learning. It is expected to help colleges and universities restructure education to ensure that students encounter global issues throughout their undergraduate experiences and not merely as part of a single required course. Each of the selected institutions will form a project team to design, implement and evaluate a program that will increase students’ knowledge about the world and this country’s position in it while addressing global problems.

“Our faculty will have opportunities to make global learning a more central component of our curriculum and to add to our efforts as a university to address the diversity of our country and our world,” says Provost Madeline Wake of Marquette’s participation.

Eighty-nine colleges and universities nationwide applied to participate in the AACU project. It is funded by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
