This document aims to capture the growing sense of global community that is permeating our worldwide network as a way for us all to consider how we are animating the global dimension of our schools, and preparing citizens of the world. Certainly, we come from incredibly diverse local and global contexts and cultures. Our curriculums vary, our cultural norms and expectations are different, we have at times an imbalance of resources at our fingertips, and our languages spoken span the globe. This richness in diversity; however, should be celebrated and relished as an opportunity to serve our universal mission as a universal body. These four questions, and the explanations that follow, are not constructed to provide definitive answers, but to help shape our collective conversation… 1. What is Global Citizenship?
2. What do we hope for in our students and school communities? 3. How can we animate the global dimensions of our schools through global citizenship? 4. What unique opportunity do we have in our global network of Jesuit schools?
