What is a Globally Certified Course?
All non-General Education undergraduate courses with an official course prefix and number can be certified as aligning with the goals of the Global Citizens Project. Certified courses receive the Global Citizens course attribute (GCPC) in Banner and can count toward requirements for the Global Citizen Award. Please note that courses with special topics numbers (course numbers ending in X930-X939) and FKL General Education courses are not eligible for the GCPC course attribute.
It is strongly recommended that, before beginning the certification process, you consult with the GCP Professional Development Specialists. They can help you prepare your proposal materials in a variety of different ways that can accommodate your busy schedule.
