Global learning, by some also defined as "internationalization at home," is "the process of diverse people collaboratively analyzing and addressing complex issues that transcend borders" Landorf and Doscher, 2015

What is global learning? 

Firmly embedded into FIU's undergraduate curriculum, the Global Learning for Global Citizenship initiative since 2010 has shepherded more than 140,000 students through global learning experiences that shaped their awareness, perspectives and passion for addressing global problems.
