Increasing global interdependence is placing new demands on university educators. Some educators are beginning to respond by taking seriously the concept of global citizenship education. This paper advocates the value of an outcomes-based approach to global citizenship education and suggests a framework of core learning outcomes that can guide and inform the development of global citizenship curricula. This framework – which includes a set of identity outcomes, ethical outcomes, and social practice outcomes – is offered as an invitation to dialogue regarding ways that universities can contribute more effectively to the education of responsible global citizens in an increasingly interdependent world.
