For several years, the authors have been analyzing data from the Global Perspective Inventory (GPI), a national survey that measures undergraduate students' ability to take a global perspective by examining cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal dimensions of this key attribute of global learning. The survey also probes the frequency of students' engagement in curricular and cocurricular experiences intended to foster global learning, as well as students' sense of community and the nature of their interactions with faculty. The multi-level framework of the GPI allowed the authors to study connections between the dimensions of student learning and campus environmental influences. Between August 2011 and June 2013, 37,967 undergraduates who were enrolled at more than a hundred four-year institutions completed the Global Perspective Inventory; the empirical evidence presented in this article is based on the results.
