JWL’s International Faculty are drawn from institutions of higher education from around the world. A key feature of the JWL model is the collaborative learning support available to students. Faculty, many of whom volunteer their time, along with online tutors, local learning center tutors, and peer-to-peer support all contribute to student success. Local learning center staff includes Learning Center Coordinators, Academic Tutors, IT support staff, and Facilitators.
JWL seeks to develop new structures of coordination tapping into existing resources and acting in synergy with Jesuit Provinces, universities and other like-minded partners. JWL aims to strengthen, create, and develop webs of relationships to provide access to higher education to the “least” among us, the globally destitute, forced migrants and refugees, tribal or religiously oppressed, marginalized rural and urban poor and others.
The primary purpose of the on-line tutor is to work with JWL Diploma students, in collaboration with the on-site learning center staff and online faculty, to enhance their written expression and provide a better understanding of the academic environment in which they study. On-line tutors play a key role in ensuring appropriate and effective academic support for JWL's Diploma students.
