What is a GCP Info Session?
The Global Citizen Award program is a fun and flexible way for USF undergraduate students to develop the qualities
of a global citizen and be rewarded for their accomplishments. Students can create
their own adventure by attending campus events and completing 2 global activities
from the options of research, community service, upper-level foreign language coursework,
Global Citizens coursework, internships, study abroad/away.
To get the word out about this great program and begin the conversation about global
citizenship with USF undergraduate students, we are offering to present informational
sessions in any undergraduate course. In our 30-minute to 1-hour presentation, entitled
"What in the WORLD is a Global Citizen?", we introduce students to the topic of global
citizenship, tell them about the Global Citizen Award, and connect them with our student
liaisons who are already pursuing the Award.
In this presentation students will explore what it means to be a global citizen, learn
how to connect with important global issues and people from diverse backgrounds and
places, and find out how to participate in the Global Citizen Award program. This
presentation is available to any interested parties who would like to share with their
students the benefits of being a Global Citizen – classes, student organizations,
departments, on-campus communities, etc...
