Universities can change the world

GCHERA and its partner the American University of Beirut (AUB) have received funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation for a three-year project to promote the EARTH University model to select universities in Mexico and Haiti.   EARTH University’s Key Elements of Success – values-based education, experiential/participatory learning, community engagement, social entrepreneurship, ethical leadership and decision-making – help to transform students into leaders and agents of change who make a difference to their countries and communities.

Please click here for an overview of the launch of this project. Additional press coverage of the launch is available in English and in Arabic.

In addition to the pilots in Mexico and Haiti, GCHERA would like to hear from universities across our global network that are interested in becoming involved in the project. We will seek to expand the project with interested universities. Please contact GCHERA directly to start a conversation.
