The Office of Global Engagement and DavisConnects invite faculty to submit two distinct types of global engagement course proposals:

Global Innovation Courses and Global Labs (click on links to see details and timeline)

Global Innovation courses have the stated purpose of expanding our students’ awareness of and engagement with international and global topics through study abroad experiences. They embrace these goals through the liberal arts, civic engagement and/or scholarly and creative activity, as they will enable faculty and students to connect the on-campus curriculum with off-campus elements.

Global Labs are designed to raise 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.

Support for Global Innovation courses and Global Labs is awarded by the Global Engagement Faculty Advisory Committee. Levels of funding support for these courses will vary and depend on strength of the proposal, financial need, and availability of funds. Successful applicants will receive a $2500 stipend (minus taxes, etc.) for the development of their course. Faculty collaborating on multi-department Global Innovation courses culminating in a joint experience will each receive $3000 stipends (minus taxes, etc.) for their collaboration.

Application deadline: April 2, 2021 (for courses in Fall 2021, Jan Plan 2022, or Spring 2022)

  • Next round of applications: September 2021 (for Jan Plan or Spring 2022)

Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Dean Allbritton (chair of the Global Engagement Faculty Advisory Committee) or Scott Lamer (Associate Director of Global Experiences, DavisConnects).
