About The Job

Experiential Learning Department 

Many of the wicked problems in society today required interconnected and interdependent perspectives and collective collaboration. We enable students to thrive in a VUCA world by equipping them with interdisciplinary & experiential learning tools and processes, enabling students to synthesise knowledge from multiple disciplines to address complex issues. Above all, we deepen students’ socio-cultural competence and social responsibility to the local and global community through sustainable, reciprocal engagement with partners on real-world issues.  

Office of Global Programmes 

The Office of Global Programmes aims to nurture and equip students with competencies to thrive in a globalised world. Besides effective cross-cultural communication skills, we also prioritise imbuing students with empathy, problem-solving skills, innovation and a balanced understanding of pressing global concerns such as sustainable development. We do this through a range of overseas experiential learning programmes for SUSS students and youths in the region.
