Program Goals Statement

This program offers students the opportunity to develop the global perspective and interpersonal competencies needed for success in the emerging global workplace such as communication, team building, leadership, and project management skills and to practice them by engaging in service-learning. It also offers them the opportunity to learn strategies for applying their education to address social problems in their community.

Program Information

Students are required to take either GVT 112 with a services Learning component or HST 266, which has a service-learning component. Students may ask for permission to substitute GVT 112, HST 111, HST 112, or HST 257 if the student completed a service-learning component for it or another course in his or her program of study.
