The Education Committee promotes lifelong education within the general framework of the World Methodist Council by means of studies, reflections, contacts, and exchange of information. It recognizes and shares the diversity of perspectives in Wesleyan and Methodist traditions of education and seeks a shared vision and mission to support the educational work of the several member churches of the World Methodist Council. To achieve these goals, the Education Committee performs concrete actions promoting a global and connexional education. This work involves persons, institutions, and partners around the world.
A major means of achieving the Education Committee’s objectives is its involvement with the International Association of Methodist Schools, College and Universities (IAMSCU).
