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) 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.
Your course already has the global content - let us help you showcase it. In this
fast-paced, hands-on workshop, we'll help guide you through the University's Course Proposal System and submitting your certification materials.
