What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 85 years, World Learning has equipped individuals and institutions to address the world’s most pressing problems. We believe that, working together with our partners, we can change this world for the better.
On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with many of those who have joined us in this mission. In Baghdad, we’ve trained more than 2,300 Iraqi youth who are already giving back at home. In London, our partners in the TAAP Initiative strongly believe that we are all responsible to practice inclusion. And in Vermont, our Experiment in International Living and School for International Training participants prove every day that they have the tools and the determination to change the world.
Please join us in our pursuit of a more peaceful and just world.

Building the capacity of the University of Anbar to provide improved educational and career development opportunities to students, thereby preparing graduates with the 21st century hard and soft skills needed to successfully enter the workforce.
The Investing in the Liberated University of Anbar project, funded by the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, aims to strengthen the capacity of the University with particular focuses on engineering education, English language teaching and learning, and career support for students. The project consists of a substantial collaborative needs assessment followed by technical assistance activities to address priority needs.
World Learning is delivering several professional development workshop series for faculty in three colleges who either prepare English teachers or teach through the medium of English, to strengthen the respective skill sets and pedagogies. World Learning is also delivering workshops to strengthen the University’s career services to better meet the needs of students, as well as facilitating a labor market assessment to inform curricula design and student support. World Learning’s implementing partner Purdue University is supporting the University’s College of Engineering with international accreditation preparation as well as a range of faculty development initiatives.
- Identify and prioritize the University of Anbar’s capacity development needs through a participatory needs assessment.
- Support and foster sustainable partnerships between the University of Anbar and Purdue University and World Learning/SIT Graduate Institute.
