Categories Featured, Goal 5

The Office of the Provost is supporting the Global Education Initiative (GEI) for a second year to continue the internationalization of undergraduate courses at Georgia State .  The initiative came from a subcommittee of  CAP (a Senate committee) and the goal is to develop a program to enhance global competence of undergraduate students, working toward Goal 5 of the Strategic Plan: Achieve distinction of globalizing the University.  Selected faculty will attend a two-day training workshop to help them transform their courses from a global perspective. They will also be awarded $2000 to use for professional development, a graduate research assistant, or summer salary. The training will be conducted May 9-10, 2013, giving faculty the summer to globalize their courses. The new globalized courses will be taught in Fall 2013 or Spring 2014. You will find the GEI announcement and application on the links below:
