DePaul University and the SUNY COIL Center

About DePaul University

Among the most innovative schools in the United States, according to US News and World Report 2015, DePaul University is a large, vibrant, urban, private institution, inspired by the ethos and mission of Saint Vincent de Paul. Guided by its current strategic plan, Vision 2018, DePaul is engaged in a process of comprehensive internationalization that, by leveraging the global diversity of Chicago, aims at infusing international and comparative perspectives throughout the teaching, research, and service missions of the university. In this context, DePaul launched a university wide COIL initiative in 2013, branded as Global Learning Experience (GLE). To date, over 100 faculty members have taken part in the GLE professional development workshop, and over 40 courses have been offered with a collaborative online international learning component, working with a network of partner institutions in 15 different countries. DePaul is delighted to partner with the SUNY COIL Center to gather the COIL community of practitioners and scholars in Chicago for an opportunity to share best practices and learn from one another.

About the SUNY COIL Center

For over a decade the SUNY COIL Center has been reimagining  education as a globally networked phenomenon. COIL links faculty across borders to co-create learning environments in which students gain valuable digital and cross-cultural competencies through collaboration with international peers. The COIL Center’s Nodal and Global Partner Networks have grown from a handful of loosely participating campuses in 2006 to over 50 committed member institutions working to scale this model. We have expanded the landscape of higher education; at SUNY, across the US, and around the world by implementing the COIL model to benefit students, faculty, and staff. We welcome the opportunity to reflect on the evolution of the field, to celebrate accomplishments, to welcome new practitioners to our networks, and to investigate how COIL will continue to transcend boundaries now and into the future.
