ELPS 465: Interdisciplinary Ed Leadership: Cross Cultural Methods to Advance Justice (Rome)

The purpose of this course is to provide an integrated, immersive learning experience for PK-20 educators, including but not limited to teachers, administrators, school psychologists, university personnel, etc. Educators work daily to open their doors to families, students, and parents, all who are from diverse cultures and backgrounds. The word “catholic” is defined as all-embracing, and at a Catholic Jesuit university we work to be people for others, seeing God in all things. Educators also work to ensure equal access to education, equal quality of education, and equal opportunities in education for all children and families. Advocating for the educational and mental health rights and opportunities of others is a foundational for all educators.

Given that educators across different professions/disciplines must work together, it is ideal to provide training experiences in which they can learn together as well as learn from each other about how to better understand their own cultural beliefs and values and immerse in the process of understanding the cultural beliefs and values of others in order to collaboratively advance justice in education.
