Event Description

Please join us for the annual gathering of Friends Association for Higher Education. This year our theme is "Global Education, Global Quakerism," with papers and workshops that address the global diversity of Quakerism and the changing educational landscape and pedagogy of the Religious Society of Friends.

During our annual meeting we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first World Gathering of Quakers at Guilford College that took place in 1967. This event was a watershed moment in the history of Guilford College, because it was the impetus that contributed to the integration of the college in 1962 and the admittance of the school's first African students.  

We will explore these queries (as well as other topics on Friends concerns in education):

  • What are the needs and/or resources of education within a global context?
  • What examples from global education can Friends draw on and learn from?
  • Who are Friends educating?
  • What are the needs of today's student? What are the educational efforts of Quaker institutions to adapt to the changing context they find themselves within?
  • What are the critical changes that have happened or need to happen in order to re-envision Quaker education in a global context?
  • What new skills, practices and technologies do Friends need in order to engage with today's students?

We also will explore our disciplinary theme of "Quakers, Politics, and Economics" for the 5th volume in our book series Quakers and the Disciplines.
