St. Mary’s Leads the Way on Global Dialogues

Hana Barber ’25, Global Education Director John Nichols, and Sophie Wallace ’25 are helping to shape the global curriculum here and across the country. 

Two St. Mary’s students and a faculty member are helping to shape the global curriculum here and across the country. The school is one of 22 named as a Leading Partner in Global Dialogues by Global Education Benchmark Group (GEBG), a collection of K-12 schools that researches and establishes model practices in global education. Participating schools across the world connect for intercultural dialogues on globally relevant topics like climate change and gender equality.

Hana Barber ’25 and Sophie Wallace ’25 are members of the Student Advisory Council. They will join other student leaders in monthly summits to discuss how to further develop the global dialogue events, including selecting meaningful topics of discussion. St. Mary’s Global Education Director John Nichols participates in the Educator Advisory Council, which develops curricular materials to help thousands of students become more engaged global citizens.

Participation in these global dialogues adds another offering to the expanding Global Education program, designed to help students develop the knowledge and skills required to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world.
