Globalize a Course
Internationalization of the curriculum is a key component of comprehensive campus internationalization. DCCC has been a leader in this effort since 2013 when we created the Scholars of Global Distinction program. Global Scholars are required to take 15 hours of globalized courses. As more faculty globalize courses, more students will have the opportunity to earn this distinction. By infusing global content and an international perspective to their course material, instructors are providing students with a cutting edge education.

Study abroad is for everyone. DCCC faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to participate in DCCC short-term study abroad programs. Each year, faculty and staff have the opportunity to apply to lead a study abroad program. Mandatory information sessions will be held in the fall to apply for the following academic year.

Each semester DCCC offers a series of “Passport Events” for the campus community. These events encompass a variety of presentation formats with an international theme. Faculty are encouraged to bring classes and/or encourage students to attend. Many faculty members provide extra credit for attendance. Students may pick up a ‘passport’ at the International Education Center (Gee N139-142) which will be stamped at each event for easy tracking. This is an easy way for faculty to support student retention through campus engagement!
