Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Global Citizenship eLearning Via American Collegiate

Updated: Jul 8, 2021

I have had the great privilege of teaching the Global Citizenship Course (GCC), a credit-bearing university course designed for international students enrolled at American Collegiate Live at UMass Boston. In this course, my students explored topics such as bias and prejudice, intercultural communication, tolerance and acceptance, sustainability, cultural self-awareness, gender and sexuality, human rights, and globalization.

I have taught this course to over 130 international students at UMass Boston via the American Collegiate eLearning platform and my students have been located across the world; India, China, Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, Africa, Taiwan, and the Middle East. My favorite part about teaching the GCC has been playing a part in equipping students with the global and intercultural fluency skills they need to succeed while facilitating global learning activities. The GCC international students build global leadership skills, effective communication skills, and participate in active-learning activities across cultures and regions.

The GCC is vital to a student’s education. As the world becomes more interconnected, it is paramount to know how to address global issues in cross-cultural group settings. Students who are committed to diversity and inclusion will have greater opportunities to succeed in the global workforce.
