The CRS Global Solidarity Network (GSN) study e-broad program is an online learning community and curricular resource that offers students and faculty in the United States a deeper understanding of the challenges the world’s most vulnerable face, as well as their strength and resilience. It provides insight into the multi-faceted nature of humanitarian relief and development work as well as the principles that inform Catholic Relief Services and its partners.
The GSN is designed to be used in courses in a variety of disciplines, from liberal arts to professional education in business, health sciences, engineering and others.
The GSN provides faculty and students with current information and on-the-ground analysis from CRS expert staff working directly on these issues. Resources and topics are selected by a faculty advisory committee, together with CRS staff.
For a two-week period, students review short essays and videos prepared by CRS and faculty experts on a particular topic. At the highest level of engagement, faculty can additionally choose to participate in an online discussion forum linked to one other class at a participating college or university. In addition, these faculty will have the option to participate in a live web-meeting with CRS staff.
The GSN program and website aim to be a resource for higher education, connecting faculty and students from around the country in an online community of networking and resources.
