Global Education awakens students and the larger community to the responsibility of participating actively in the human family worldwide. For the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, Global Education opens “a pathway to discover, a space to announce the love of the heart of Jesus” (Chapter 2000) through campus ministry, curriculum, service, international exchange, professional development and international affiliations. This reciprocal process is invitational, obligational and transformational.
Journeying with peoples of different contexts, races, and cultures, and listening profoundly to the joys and suffering of humanity have allowed us to be touched by the poverty, inequality, exclusion, violence, and environmental destruction that are present in today’s world. We recognize with greater clarity the interconnectedness of global realities and the impact that these have on our local situations. We are more aware of the marginalizing effects of globalization and of cultures of dominance and exclusion. (Chapter 2008)
