Preparing Students to Teach and Lead in a Diverse, Globally Connected World

It has never been more important for educators and other professionals engaged in the field of education to be globally conscious and equipped to instill global competency in their own students. Through engagement with international students, institutional partnerships, on-campus international programming, study abroad opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students, and research with visiting scholars, we prepare globally conscious citizens, teachers, administrators, researchers, and policymakers who are ready to confront the global challenges and embrace the worldwide possibilities of our time.


College's Australia study abroad trip gives future teachers a global education

by Sharita Forrest  /   Nov 2, 2015

Lindsay Duffy, an elementary education major, has wanted to visit Australia since the seventh grade. So when she found out she'd be studying abroad Down Under through the College of Education, she “did a little happy dance.”

Duffy, a junior from Orland Park, Illinois, was among 26 Education students who studied in Australia this past summer. As with previous study trips organized by the College that took Illinois students to destinations such as Argentina, China, and South Africa, each participant received a $500 scholarship toward her or his travel expenses.
