Faculty and Staff

Certify Your Course

Nelson Mandela-Education 

Our aim at USF is to provide global education to our students that equip them with the knowledge, values, and skills they need to flourish in any environment. Offering GCP courses is essential to raise our students' cultural awareness and promote their global competence.

Please contact our Professional Development Specialist to develop your certification materials, or if you have any inquiry regarding GCP course certification. 

We will be providing a certification program via Canvas in Fall 2021. The program will provide faculty with resources to develop global content for their courses and get the certification materials ready. This is a great opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration as faculty from across campuses will be able to join the program. 

To submit a GCP certification proposal for an existing or new course, please use the University's Course Proposal System. The Undergraduate Council (UGC) or General Education Council (GEC) will conduct the final review for all GCP certification proposals.


Courses That Can Be Certified

All  undergraduate courses with an official course prefix and number (i.e., not special topics courses) can be certified as Global Citizens courses.  Certified courses receive the Global Citizens course attribute (GCPC) in Banner and can count toward requirements for the Global Citizen Award.


We provide various resources to faculty, including Global Competency Test, which helps faculty show the impact of global education provided to students in their courses.

For further information, please contact Bruce McCollaum: bmccollaum@usf.edu

We also ask faculty as they plan their future courses to consider scheduling a GCP Info Session instead of canceling their class.
