SUSS encourages students to explore global concerns through Global Service-Learning (GSL). GSL provides students with an opportunity to participate in a service activity in another country that addresses community-identified needs, learn from direct interaction and cross-cultural dialogue with others, and reflect on the experiences to gain a deep understanding of global and intercultural issues, a broader appreciation of the host country and an enhanced sense of their own responsibilities both as local and global citizens.
Students are encouraged to relate GSL to their local service-learning, either by the social issue, community partner or skill-set required.
Students may embark on Global Service-Learning in the following ways:
Participation in GSL may be submitted in fulfilment of the Overseas Experience graduating requirement of the SUSS full-time degree programme.
