Through global inquiry, academic partnerships, collaborative research endeavors and international immersion opportunities for students, SP2 is addressing complex social problems around the world. “No matter where any of us works or conducts research, we are all global citizens insofar as international forces (some easy to identify, others more opaque and obscure) influence the tiniest crevices of our personal lives. Whether we want to end homelessness in Philadelphia or Detroit, challenge biases in our nation’s criminal justice system, or start a nonprofit to address poverty in urban Mexico, as professionals, we need a comprehensive understanding of how global processes impact the issues we care most about.” -Dean John L. Jackson, Jr. Partners Abroad Partners Abroad SP2 faculty work with a number of institutions and organizations in China, India, and Korea.
