Getting Involved in Globalizing Education
Faculty and staff can play a pivotal role in international education at the University of Colorado Denver, from leading Global Study programs, to mentoring overseas research projects, to encouraging students to study abroad, incorporating students international experiences into the classroom, and much more. Research indicates that study abroad transforms students’ lives, resulting in improved academic performance, increased engagement, fueled students’ “worldliness,” and enhanced their personal life satisfaction, among other impacts. We welcome you to be part of these extraordinary educational opportunities. Your support and experience is invaluable to students seeking to engage in a global economy and society.
We encourage you to meet with us to see how you can:
- Lead a Global Study program during the winter, summer, or Maymester term
- Develop international learning opportunities for your department
- Advise students on study abroad
- Mentor a student interested in conducting research outside the US
