Davis Global Course Proposals

DavisConnects and the Office of the Dean of Global Engagement invites faculty from any Colby department or program to submit proposals for developing new and/or revising innovative courses in an effort to support the development of creative and immersive global experiences led by Colby faculty, ensuring high-quality, personalized, engaging, and rigorous experiences abroad for our students.

Proposals will be accepted for:


Davis Global Innovation Courses

These courses should have the stated purpose of expanding significantly our students’ awareness of and engagement with international and global topics through abroad experiences or global experiences within the U.S.

Global Labs

These labs should have the stated purpose of expanding significantly our students’ awareness of and engagement with international and global topics, highlighting connections between local and global issues, contexts, and concerns and promoting established and new global research partnerships.

Key Dates and Deadlines

Support for global proposals is awarded by the Global Engagement Faculty Advisory Committee. Levels of funding support will vary and depend on strength of the proposal, financial need, and availability of funds.
