CEBS Global Pathways Initiative
The College of Education and Behavioral Sciences (CEBS) received funds to create a task force to determine the best strategies to ensure that students have an opportunity to understand their discipline in a global context. The CEBS Global Pathways Initiative Committee created a generic module on globalization principles that can be integrated into any course in all program areas. These curriculum materials provide a basic introduction to existing knowledge regarding cultural competence. They are designed to provide instructors with accurate information that can easily be integrated into existing undergraduate and graduate-level courses, including courses in psychology and education. In so doing, it is hoped that these materials will enhance the quantity and quality of globalization and the cultural competence framework content in existing courses, so that students can be better prepared for the intellectual and societal challenges facing an increasingly diverse society.
