GSL5: Dignity & Justice in Global Service Learning

 

5th Global Service-Learning Summit 

April 15–17, 2018 | University of Notre Dame

 

Registration Closed

Hosted by the Center for Social Concerns, GSL5: Dignity & Justice in Global Service-Learning Summit will convene secular and faith-based organizations committed to co-educating and collaborating for social change. The Summit calls for critical dialogue and research with particular attention to the role of values in global service-learning and the role of faith-based organizations in social and economic development.

The Summit's theme, Dignity & Justice in Global Service-Learning, aims to bring visibility and awareness to the history, richness of values, and moral dimensions in higher education, including the role of faith-based and secular institutions in supporting community and international development, civic and political engagement, democracy and human rights, while also educating students as faith-filled people and/or socially responsible global citizens. Aligned with the Summit’s themes, see globalsl.org resources that have explored faith, values, and service learning.

Adam Russell Taylor, Lead of Faith Initiative at the World Bank Group and former White House Fellow in the Office of Cabinet Affairs and Public Engagement, will give the opening keynote Sunday April 15 at 3:30 pm. His keynote, "Mercy and Justice: Where Religion and Development Can Intersect,” is cosponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.

Dawn Michele Whitehead, Senior Director of Global Learning and Curricular Change for the American Association of College and Universities, will also address the Summit participants. “Ensuring Global Service Learning is an Ethical High-Impact Practice” will be Monday April 16 at 9:45 am.

Both keynotes will be free and open to the public. These and over 50 additional Summit sessions will be held at the Notre Dame Conference Center.
