Jesuit Worldwide Learning

Jesuit Worldwide Learning: Higher Education at the Margins (JWL)* is a collaborative global partnership comprised of organizations, institutions, companies and, above all, people, to provide tertiary education to those who would otherwise not have access to higher learning opportunities. It draws on the rich and centuries-long Jesuit tradition of higher education and through a blended on-site and online approach mobilizes the resources of Jesuit and other worldwide networks of educational institutions.
Work accomplished from many volunteers, strong on-site and virtual partnerships, a lean executive team and the commitment from the students over the past five years continues to move JWL forward in achieving its mission: “Learning Together to Transform the World."
