Global Education House

The Global Educaiton House is one of the University's recurring themed living communities. It's intent is to create an opportunity for experiential learning and dialog surrounding global issues and ideas, focusing specifically on the creation and implementation of service learning projects that engage the Augustana community within broader international contexts. 

Residents of the Global Education House will largely be responsible for creating and implementing the specific service learning projects they wish to complete, however the University has identified specific outcomes that these projects will need to address:

  1. Connectedness and Integration.  The Global Education House must help address the continuing need for international and domestic student connectedness and integration throughout the campus community.
  2. Study Abroad Transitions.  The Global Education House must provide opportunities for students who are transitioning from a study abroad experience to process, re-integrate, and share their experiences with others, particularly those who are anticipating a study abroad experience as well.
  3. International Student Support.  The Global Education House must provide opportunities for support of current and incoming international students.  This can include, but is not limited to, close collaborations with the International Programs Office, the Augustana International Club, and the Multicultural Programs Office to provide programming specific to international student needs.
  4. Community Outreach.  The Global Education House must help bridge the gap between the Augustana and Sioux Falls communities, bringing local and regional issues to campus and sharing our global perspective outward into the larger communities in which we live.

The house hosts 15 students each year, offering 4 double rooms and 7 single rooms. Both men and women are allowed to live in the house. All students interested in living in the Global Education House will need to go through the application and interview process. If you currently live in the Global Education House and are intending to homestead you must still complete an application and interview.
