Global Bryn Mawr Mission

Global Bryn Mawr Mission Statement: Bryn Mawr approaches global learning with a commitment to integrating study, action and reflection. Bryn Mawr’s curriculum and community—inside and outside of the classroom—seek to engage with the complexity, specificity and interdependence of global experience.

The Global Bryn Mawr Office coordinates and communicates the College's global engagement in the arenas of learning, community, and infrastructure. The College takes a collaborative, interdisciplinary, institution-wide approach to global learning, on and off campus. Integral to this approach is an institution-wide network of committees comprised of faculty and staff members that, led by the Associate Dean for Global Engagement, work with departments across the College to prioritize, support, manage, incubate, and communicate international and intercultural activities.

Global Capacities for Student Learning

The development of capacities for global learning is essential to an undergraduate liberal arts education. Whether students major in the humanities, social sciences, or sciences, their imaginative, well-informed engagement with global issues and questions is critical, both during their undergraduate years and beyond. Bryn Mawr students experience, study, and reflect on the significance of people’s languages, cultures, histories, and narratives through a broad range of opportunities within and outside of the classroom. The global learning capacities are woven through study on campus and abroad, experiential engagements such as internships and research, and civic engagement that connects domestic and international experiences.
