Community Campus Partnerships for Global Learning and Human Rights – May 14-16

Posted on February 12, 2019

The University of Dayton, in partnership with GlobalSL.org and sponsored by Ohio Campus Compact and Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education, would like to invite you to attend a Midwest Summer Institute that builds on the 10 year tradition of GlobalSL summer institutes.

The inaugural midwest institute, “Community Campus Partnerships for Global Learning and Human Rights,” will be in Dayton, OH from 1pm on May 14 to 1pm on May 16, 2019.  Building on a commitment to the common good and collaborating with globalsl (http://globalsl.org), a multi-institutional hub supporting ethical community-based global learning, the institute will bring 50 people together from regional higher education institutions and NGO’s.

As part of a learning community, the participants will engage with each other and Dayton community organizations to deepen their community-campus partnership practices for reciprocity and co-creation, and to advance community and student outcomes for ethical, community-based global learning – domestically and internationally.

Topics will include:

  • Sustainable Development Goals and how they can frame our work
  • A Human Rights Framework for community-based global learning
  • Ethics and reciprocity in transnational community-campus partnerships
  • Institutional, transdisciplinary collaborations for the common good
  • Fair Trade Learning
  • Assessing partnership work for continuous improvement and community wellbeing
