Statewide Summit on Global Learning
In today’s interconnected, interdependent world, global learning is critical to our state's success. There are more than 210 languages spoken in our schools. Global is now local. We invite you to be a part of the transformative work that is happening.
During this past year, a Global Learning Advisory Board was established through a grant by the Longview Foundation, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Education and St. Cloud State University. A critical charge of this Board was to develop a Statewide Strategic Plan for Global Learning inclusive of all stakeholders who impact PK-12 education. This includes: PK-12 and postsecondary educators, business partners, and government and community organizations.
This Statewide Summit will host keynote speakers and breakout sessions for all stakeholders. Participants will learn from national and state leaders, and be involved in reflective dialogue as they review the draft strategic plan. Your input is critical to further the work of the advisory board tasked with finalizing the strategic plan.
