Faculty Global Citizenship Certification

  • Purpose: To encourage faculty to increase their global knowledge and intercultural competencies and pass this on to their students.

  • Attend 6 sessions of an in-house workshop series. Workshops topics include: “Building Intercultural Competencies,” “Intercultural Conflict Resolution,” “Religious Practices in the Classroom,” and “Getting to Know ESOL Students.”

  • Create, implement, and present a classroom or campus project.

  • This certificate counts as professional development for faculty and is sponsored by CCBC’s Center for Teaching and Excellence.


INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUES

  • International/ESOL Students visit classes in various disciplines (English, Speech, World Languages, Music, Theatre, World Literature, etc.)

  • They have the opportunity to dialogue with students in the courses on a variety of topics (such as holidays, religion, health care, and women’s issues in their native countries).

  • This program facilitates an open exchange between individuals with different cultural backgrounds.

  • Students enrolled in the course are able to ask the international students questions.

  • Instructors may work with students beforehand in order to tailor the dialogue to their curriculum.
