Renowned scholar to lecture about global learning

October 10, 2013

Caryn McTighe Musil, senior scholar and director of civic learning and democracy at the Association of American Colleges and Universities, will speak about the importance of global learning during an appearance at CSU.

Musil's lecture – “Global Learning and Action: What’s at Stake?” – is set for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at the Morgan Library Event Hall. The event is free and open to the public, but attendees must RSVP online by Friday, Oct. 11, to reserve a box lunch.

Musil currently is directing a multi-project national initiative called Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement. As part of the initiative, Musil has worked in partnership with the Global Perspective Institute to host a series of national roundtable meetings to learn from a broad spectrum of leaders within and beyond higher education about how to make civic learning an expected outcome for every college student.

Wrote key education report

Musil was lead author in the resulting report to the Department of Education, “A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy's Future.” It was officially released in January 2012 at a special White House event.

The event supported by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs, TILT, and the College of Health and Human Sciences Diversity Committee.
