Midwest Summer Institute

Community Partnership for Global Learning and Human Rights

The Midwest Summer Institute will be held on UD’s campus at Emerson’s Helix Innovation Center. Collaborating with globalsl (, a multi-institutional hub supporting ethical global learning and community campus partnerships, approximately 50 people will gather as members of a learning community dedicated to continuously improving community and student outcomes through community-campus partnerships for ethical global learning — domestically and internationally.

For two and a half days, participants will think and dialogue deeply with academic and practitioner leaders and community partners, and they will consider innovative approaches for advancing ethical community-engaged global learning.

Pedagogy, Style and Intent

This Institute mirrors the pedagogy, style and intent of past summer institutes in that it will

  • be collaborative, open and participatory;
  • feature small group dialogue, exploration and exchange;
  • include no more than 50 participants;
  • offer clear tools and strategies for engaged global learning pedagogies;
  • consider models of ethical community-campus partnerships;
  • include space for robust critique, questioning and new collaborations.
