Shared Futures: Two Universities' Global Learning Initiatives
Despite Marquette University's emphasis on global learning, including study abroad and international service learning programs, students ranked global issues as very low in importance when they participated in the National Survey of Student Engagement. "When we got the NSSE results, we were mystified. We have lots of co-curricular [activities] and core course that address global issues. Why aren't students identifying global issues as important to their education?" says Christine Krueger, Marquette's director of core of common studies.
