Faculty Resources

The Global Learning Office is excited to share some great resources for CPCC departments and faculty.

Request a Speaker

If your department or faculty is interested in hearing from a global expert, the Global Learning Office will be happy to serve as conduit for these programs.

Additional opportunities to request a speaker from organizations including the Peace Corps and Cultural Vistas, are available here.

Globalize Your Class

Globalizing curriculum ensures students develop the global competencies and skills needed for the 21st century workforce and to thrive in a world that is increasingly globally connected. It is also an integral part of the NC Scholars for Global Distinction program. If you are interested in globalizing your course, please see the guidelines here. The Global Learning Office is developing a Learning Community to support this effort.
