Global Ed. Course Faculty Proposals
Concordia University Faculty Members are encouraged to propose, develop, and lead courses that substantively integrate experiential learning in an international setting (“Global Education Courses”). These courses are designed to be academically rigorous, and include intercultural, professional, faith and service learning outcomes. All faculty who desire to lead a Global Education Course are required to obtain approval from their Dean, not only for the proposed course, but for individual approval of the faculty to be Faculty Leaders. All proposed Global Ed. Courses and destinations are then reviewed for approval by the Study Abroad Faculty Advisory Committee, made up of faculty members from all 6 schools along with Study Abroad Office staff. Upon approval of a course, Faculty Leaders are expected to be the driving force in developing their Global Ed. Course, making travel and logistical arrangements, developing a budget, recruiting and advising potential student travelers, conducting pre-departure and on-site orientations for students, and collecting all necessary information and documents from participants. Faculty Leaders work collaboratively with the Study Abroad Office through the entire program cycle.
