Develop a database of activities, assignments, and teaching strategies that faculty use to infuse global perspectives into their courses.

Provide more opportunities for students to have more intercultural out-of-class experiences, drawing on the resources available in New York.
Find ways to incorporate study abroad experiences into different majors.
Utilize our students’ vast cultural diversity as well as that of New York City.
Develop intercultural and global learning communities for freshmen.
Institute a faculty development program, including a faculty learning community modeled on the CTL Teaching and Technology Fellows, to foster global education.
