Mercy Connections: International Opportunities for Faculty and Students

Kelly, Mary

The Conference on Mercy Higher Education Symposium was convened to answer the question: "How do we develop global citizens within the framework of Mercy higher education?"  This presentation responds with information about Sisters of Mercy ministries beyond the United States in order to facilitate development of service learning, study abroad, alternative spring break a and service projects in additional locations. The presentation includes the first compilation of Mercy ministry locations beyond the U.S. that are possible sites for international university programs; information about selected programs of University and College members of Conference for Mercy Higher Education to promote networking, and a beginning look at opportunities for additional Mercy Ministry Connections for Conference members.
