GLE Activities and Events
To earn the GLE you must attend at least four globally focused activities or events, including a minimum of at least one per semester that you are pursuing the GLE. After each activity or event, you should submit a reflection on the D2L-GLE site. This will help you build a portfolio for your capstone project.
Activities and events should help you engage with people, artifacts, ideas from a culture different than your own. For example, if you attend a cultural festival you should do more than taste the food, you should interact in ways that help you develop cross-cultural relationships. If you attend a lecture on a global topic, you should be challenged to think about yourself, others, and the world in new ways. If you're wondering if an activity can "count" for the GLE, just ask! We're here to discover new opportunities with you!
Below is a list of activities and events that have already been approved for the GLE. If you would like to see an activity added to the list or would like to attend an activity not on this list, please contact your coach or Jillian in the Office of Global Education or 248.232.4730.
