The Association of American Colleges and Universities has added Stephens College to its list of 16 selected participant schools in a nationwide effort to make college curriculum reflect a more global view.

The General Education for Global Learning initiative, launched in October, is the latest project spearheaded by the Washington-based education association under its Shared Futures program. Its aim, according to the association’s Web site, is to foster a sense of social responsibility in students and faculty through teacher seminars, learning resources and restructured general-education courses.

Funding for the program is distributed to each of the host campuses via a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation and is used in part to develop a network among schools that helps them achieve the initiative’s goals.
