New Courses in Global and Regional Issues

Deadline: Friday, January 11, 2019
One of our priorities at SGS is to provide more pathways for students across all undergraduate majors to learn about issues of regional and global importance, be it through coursework, internships, research opportunities, or study abroad. 
In an effort to stimulate new curricular pathways, SGS is making available a pool of resources – on a competitive basis – to support the development of new courses focused on substantive topics of regional or global interest for the academic year 2019-20. Our goal is to spur the design of courses that can appeal to large numbers of students or reach students early in their academic trajectory. 
We will be making two types of grants:
1. New Course Development - seeking to support the development of courses that:
  • Are centered on a question or issue that invites a focused exploration of regional or cross-regional materials;
  • Bring regional or global perspectives to technical fields or issues;
  • Are geared toward freshmen and sophomores.
2. New Course Development with a Study Abroad Component (in partnership with the Bing Overseas Studies Program)
