The College of Education is known for its engagement across the globe. This engagement comes in the form of research, collaborative international teaching experiences, and community service.
The Baker Teacher Leader Center (BTLC) is pleased to support the ongoing global engagement of the College of Education community through a variety of programs. More recently, the college seeks to expand its opportunities to travel and learn abroad. Through these experiences our students can better understand who they are in the world, can forge new relationships built on mutual goals of peace and equity, and can bring their experiences in the world to their classrooms and future work as educators. The Global Education Initiatives program through the BTLC offers experiential learning courses and experiences around the globe.
