Global Learning For All

Terps: when we say global learning for all, we mean you.


To all Terps,

As an active generation calling for change and making the world a better place, you are always thinking beyond yourselves. Looking forward is central to what we do, and we're here to help sharpen your future mindset.

No two global learning experiences look alike. Just like you can't copy and paste a Terp, you can't put global learning at Maryland into one box.

Whether you're studying abroad, enrolling in a Global Classrooms course, or taking up international service, your distinctive set of experiences, perspectives, and dreams are the key ingredient to the success of our programs. Going global means leaving our world better than how you found it. Let's do it together.

Counting the Cost

Let's acknowledge it: Global learning did not begin as an inclusive practice. It had been an imperfect modality with barriers to participation—but at Maryland, we believe in the power of accountability and transformation, and we're working at it every day. Our team is a community of solution designers and optimists, ready to work one on one to impart every Terp with the global experience they need to thrive in a changing world.

Global Learning, Transformed

As the world changes, so do we. That's why we've expanded our global learning programs to meet the needs of our students, on campus and beyond.

Global Classrooms

The unique proposition of global learning is really helping you understand who you are in the world, who other people are, and how you can work together to solve complex issues that affect you collectively.
