Information on proposing a Global Course Connections (GCCs)

Global Course Connections (GCC) programs are 3-4 week-long extensions of courses taught on campus during winter term.

  • LSA Faculty may propose GCCs from any academic discipline.
  • LSA Faculty who teach GCCs deliver original academic content that bridges classroom and experiential learning.
  • This is a great option for LSA Faculty to teach special topics abroad that can provide students enriching academic learning opportunities while also creating engaging global experiences.
  • Selected proposals will receive a minimum grant of $10,000 to help support program costs. Depending on program length and location, programs might qualify for additional funding.

If your proposal is accepted, CGIS provides support on various fronts such as making logistical arrangements (housing, classroom rental, excursions), helps coordinate responses to medical situations, and so much more!
