    Abstract

    Today humanity is witnessing a remarkable shift in its perception of the world. Inexorable processes of globalisation are apparent, world problems are perplexing, and the pace of change unparalleled. Also of significance is the emergence of the concept of global citizenship; the focus of this chapter. The core of my argument here is that Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) is a powerful vehicle for developing graduate capabilities associated with global citizenship. Designated by Macquarie University as ‘a signature transformative learning program that distinguishes this University’ (Macquarie University, 2014a, p. 12) the PACE program seeks to provide transformative learning opportunities which contribute to the development of global citizens. The chapter examines research data which supports this assertion and investigates why PACE is particularly well-placed to induce such learning.
