Students & the World: The Case for Global Affairs Education

Mar 4, 2024

12:30pm – 1:00pm CT

Wildfires, viruses, and inflation don’t respect national boundaries, so why should our students’ understanding be limited to what is happening in their backyard? Ignoring the challenges outside our borders is no longer possible. Today’s interdependent global economy and geopolitical landscape require a greater understanding of the issues, forces, and actors that shape today's world. Educators have the opportunity to prepare the next generation for the increased role that global affairs will play in their lives. Join this session to get expert insights on the future of global affairs education.
