U of T is committed to student access to global learning through curricular and co-curricular experiences. Students now have expanded course, research and professional experiences available through learning abroad. The University has increased needs-based funding to reduce barriers and increase access. On campus students can participate in the Global Citizen co-curricular project and complete a Global Scholar concentration within their program. The next step in global learning is the Global Classrooms approach.

Global Classrooms (GC) offer an accessible way to internationalize teaching and learning experiences by combining cross-cultural collaborations with technology. Additionally, they enable faculty and instructors to work closely with peers abroad. GCs benefit students and organizations in participating regions by offering a cost-effective complement to student mobility, as well as creating pathways to international exchange and study abroad. The goal is to leverage existing technology and strengths within the GC collaboration. The nomenclature of “Global Classroom” is intentionally open to allow for variations and approaches that are discipline, regional, and challenge specific.
