Undergraduate Global Educators

College of Education (CED) Global Educators serve as an extension of the College’s Global Programs office as a means to increase cultural awareness and global engagement among College of Education students. CED Global Educators also work to educate themselves and the College community about the value of global experiences. They engage in global  experiences both domestic and abroad and create innovative programming highlighting their global encounters for CED students, faculty and staff.

Selected Global Educators are required to attend global programming, reflect on what they learned through their global encounters and describe how to engage more CED students, faculty and staff in global experiences and and create and execute global events.  Please find below a sample of the events and programming selected participants are required to participate in.  This list is subject to change as new events and opportunities become available.  Students are also required to take a pre & post cross cultural competency assessment.
