Global Perspectives in Higher Education

The purpose of this course is to provide students with an opportunity to explore, discuss, reflect, and analyze issues of access and equity from a global perspective. These issues include but are not limited to access, equity, economic development, and social mobility. Particular attention will be paid to historical developments and interventions (e.g. affirmative action and other initiatives)  from the government, non-government organizations, and private and public universities seeking to address educational opportunity and/or economic innovation. The specific focus of this course will be contingent upon the geographical location as the international context impacts the critical issues addressed.
