The Global Citizenship Center for Pedagogies of Self, Other and World Well-being promotes pedagogies that advance self, other and world well-being within a global citizenship framework.

To this end, we seek out and create pedagogical strategies and models that

  • Recognize our mutuality and interconnectedness at all levels
  • Promote engaging with difference without striving to assimilate or eliminate it
  • Embrace belonging to the same world we are working to change
  • Include reflection and critical thinking about our place, responsibility, action and impact in the world
  • Are committedly experiential, dialogic, liberatory and otherwise
  • Promote creative work in (and in between) multiple genres
  • Advocate for the use of non-English and non-colonial languages
  • Include the deep inner processes that allow us to offer and sustain our best work
