About This Issue

By Kathryn Peltier Campbell, Editor

Welcome to Diversity & Democracy, the newly redesigned publication formerly known as Diversity Digest. This issue focuses on Shared Futures: General Education for Global Learning, a project of AAC&U’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Global Initiatives. Participants in the Shared Futures project are dedicated to revamping their general education curricula to emphasize global learning outcomes. They see global learning as an imperative component of education for responsible citizenship.

Through their various initiatives, the Shared Futures schools are pursuing global learning with resourcefulness and vigor. Their projects range from redesigning the general education curriculum to creating courses that promote social justice both at home and abroad. Their work deliberatively bridges the intellectual gap between global contexts and local communities in the service of creating a more equitable world. The Shared Futures project complements the work of our other contributors, which ranges in scope from institutional transformation to personal engagement. Such efforts have the potential to be truly transformative.
