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 U. 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).
