The Center for the Study of Global Change promotes curriculum internationalization and encourages the incorporation of global learning outcomes in teaching and learning. The Global Center offers up to four Curriculum Development Grants each year to develop new undergraduate or graduate international courses or substantially revise existing courses to include significant international content. All faculty are eligible to apply, though projects which are broadly international and promote collaboration among professional schools, academic departments and/or area studies programs are particularly encouraged. The Center is also interested in supporting Foreign Language Across the Curriculum (FLAC) courses, one-credit foreign language "trailers" that are taught in conjunction with courses in the Arts and Sciences or the professional schools. Students in FLAC courses read articles and discuss issues in a foreign language seminar, taught either by the course instructor or a graduate student. Please contact the Center for more information.
