Global Scholar Council

The Global Scholar Certificate crosses the curriculum of the entire university. It is administered by the Global Scholar Council, a broad support and advisory body that reports to the Provost.

General Duties

The Council is not a governance body; rather it serves in a supportive and advisory role in the following ways:

  • provides peer pre‐review of GS course syllabi with regard to Global Scholar course criteria;
  • provides assistance to CETL for Global curriculum faculty development, workshop preparation and Global Learning materials;
  • works with UARC and the University Registrar to oversee the Global Scholar Certificate;
  • makes recommendations to the appropriate governance units or departments related to Global Scholar matters;
  • collaborates with the Office of International Education and the Division of Student Affairs to promote global learning activities for students on and off campus; and
  • engages with the Provost’s office to assess global learning on campus.


Eleven faculty and staff representatives serve as members of the Global Scholar Council: one representative from each of the three professional colleges (Business, Nursing, and Education and Human Services), one from each of the four divisions of the College of Letters and Science (Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, and Fine and Performing Arts), one from the Department of Global Languages and Cultures, and one each from the Office of International Education (OIE), the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center (UARC), and the University Studies Program (USP).
