      About the Certificate

      The Global Engagement Certificate (GEC) provides students with a way to document their achievement of global competency through a combination of coursework and co-curricular experiences, including the study of a foreign language and participation in study abroad.  The Global Engagement Certificate helps meet the College of Letters and Sciences' strategic priority of ensuring that L&S students are prepared for global citizenship. The skills, knowledge, experiences, and attitudes indicating "global competency" are increasingly important for new graduates and in demand by employers.  The certificate portfolio that students construct will prove highly useful in future employment and professional contexts.
