Transformation at the margins: Diploma in Liberal Studies as a catalyser of personal and community development
Jesuit Worldwide Learning (JWL)
In September 2020, our member, Jesuit Worldwide Learning (JWL), collaborated with Regis University to survey over 400 graduates. The purpose of the study was to understand the impact JWL’s Diploma in Liberal Studies program has on graduates’ lives.
The Diploma in Liberal Studies uses a Blended Online Learning approach, making higher education accessible to communities at the margins. The study shows that 91% of JWL’s graduates report at least one job experience after graduation, demonstrating that JWL’s program equips students with the skills they need to find employment.
The data in this report give hope; hope that through connected learning, JWL and other members of CLCC can equip refugees with the skills they need to find employment. Read the full report here: https://bit.ly/2Sg2nDO.
