- Clarify why global coalitions of child well-being professionals and medical professionals have advanced campaigns to discourage particular forms of international volunteering and service-learning.
- Identify and employ multiple methods for advancing ethical global engagement thinking and practices among students, faculty, administrators, community partners, and other stakeholders.
