Brock Global Learning Communities

The objective of the Global Learning Community proposal is to amplify Brock University’s commitment to offer a decolonized, diverse and inclusive education. It will also increase the participation of target-group students in virtual and in-country international experiential and work-integrated learning opportunities that embrace and integrate the UN sustainable development goals and develop career-aligned intercultural competencies.
Working with post-secondary partners in strategic, non-traditional countries that are safe, secure and stable will foster the development of enduring and sustainable partnerships, and ensure that participating students become global citizens attuned to past and current challenges, and to the future potential of the developing world.
