Association of American Colleges & Universities Conference

Our Justice U and Indiana University leadership team recently presented preliminary findings and models of our working collaboration at the 2019 Global Citizenship for Campus, Community, and Careers Conference, by the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U). This conference explores practical and theoretical approaches to global learning at the course, departmental, and institutional levels. Jessica Samuel, our Educational Initiatives Consultant, presented with IU faculty and leaders: Elizabeth Konwest, Assistant Director, Center for the Study of Global Change; Deborah Getz, Clinical Assistant Professor, School of Public Health; and Teresa Nichols, Grant and Program Manager, Center for the Study of Global Change. This working partnership team presented on the creative ways we are engaging multidisciplinary IU student teams on real product and program development with Justice U. In the process of working with Justice U, students learn more about human trafficking—nationally and globally, community engagement, business acumen, network building, product development, and more.
