The TCU Global Academy is an innovative study abroad program which brings together NGOs (non-governmental organizations), communities, TCU faculty, and students to explore global issues and solutions. The Global Academy is thematic in nature, focusing on understanding and collaborating on themes or global issues such as sustainability, social justice, ethical leadership, healthcare, and many other topics. The Global Academy is also designed to move to various corners of the world where the chosen theme is most paramount. Global Academies integrate:
- Exploration of a global issue in an interdisciplinary context
- Interaction with the culture including students, faculty, and community leaders
- An interactive teaching/learning environment. Professors guide in the learning process while collaborating, teaching, and simultaneously learning along with the comprehensive team (faculty, students, and community leaders).
