Global Learning Across the Disciplines (GLAD) Grants

Deadline: March 20, 2015

The Office for Global Engagement (OGE) is offering grants of up to $10,000 for departmental or interdisciplinary teams composed of a minimum of three faculty members to improve global learning as part of the Global Learning Across the Disciplines (GLAD) project at the University of Utah. We define global learning “as the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that students acquire through a variety of experiences that enable them to understand world cultures and events; analyze global systems; appreciate cultural differences; and apply this knowledge and appreciation to their lives as citizens and workers” (Olsen, Green and Hill, 2006). We also believe that global learning at the University of Utah connects with three other themes that reflect the institutional mission and values. They include diversity, environmental sustainability and community engagement.

This project calls on all academic departments and interdisciplinary programs to develop a global learning strategy involving the following activities:

  • Articulate global learning outcomes in the language of their respective disciplines, filtered through the lens of the other core themes of diversity, environmental sustainability, and community engagement
  • Conduct an audit of existing academic coursework and other activities offered to determine the extent to which global learning already exists in the curriculum
  • Develop strategies both within the curriculum and co-curriculum to help students achieve the global learning outcomes to which the academic program is committed
  • Develop and implement assessment strategies to establish the degree to which students are realizing specific global learning outcomes
