The ultimate (long-range) goal of Mabry's Global Learning Collaborative is to provide our students with national and international collaborations that will facilitate broader awareness and understanding, the opportunity for world-wide student publication and peer-review, and meaningful opportunities for deeper, rigorous, meaningful and relevant academic learning experiences.
