Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipating in a conference, workshop, ...


Global service-learning (GSL) is co-created by communities, organizations and institutions of higher education that together seek to advance the common good by addressing pressing issues facing local communities, nations and our world. GSL takes many forms and is found across the wide range of institutions that make up the diverse landscape of higher education and community development organizations.

The 5th Global Service-Learning Summit, to be held at the University of Notre Dame, seeks to create a space for active listening and critical dialogue between secular and faith-based organizations that are committed to co-educating and collaborating for social change and that wish to recover and re-examine the values which underlie the work.

The Summit’s theme, Dignity and 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.
