Register for the Global Challenges Institute TODAY

We just heard about a great opportunity to participate in the American Democracy Project’s 2013 Global Challenges Institute on the National Issues Forum Institute’s news feed, and the deadline to register is fast approaching. (Please note: the NIF post lists the deadline as today, Friday Oct. 4th, but the conference website lists Oct. 9th. Either way, register ASAP!).

The two-day gathering focuses on the challenge of educating globally competent citizens, and is especially focused on those working in higher ed.  You can read more about the gathering in below or check out the original NIF post by clicking here.

The American Democracy Project is pleased to announce that registration is now open
for the 2013 Global Challenges Institute, but it won’t be for long.


Friday & Saturday, November 8 – 9, 2013
Global Challenges Institute
Washington, D.C.


This two-day institute introduces participants to numerous tools for educating globally competent citizens. Global Engagement Scholars (faculty members) from 11 AASCU campuses describe how they have built courses and curricula around the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ 7 Revolutions Framework (population, resources, technology, information, economic integration, conflict/security and governance). Institute leaders demonstrate the teaching materials and resources they have found most valuable in the courses they teach (including introductory, first-year, discipline-based and honors courses) and guide participants in anticipating how these same tools could be used effectively on their home campuses.

To register, visit http://aascu.org/meetings/globalchallenges13 by October 4, 2013.
