Global Cornell has recently given five International Cornell Curriculum (ICC) grants with a total amount of $114,000 to support developing faculty courses that can provide international experiences for students. The classes will be offered in the year 2023.
According to a tweet by Global Cornell, these funded proposals will provide short-term international experiences in addition to existing courses. It may also create new courses designed along with partners abroad.
The critical considerations for grant selection were:
- Collaboration across colleges and disciplines.
- Hands-on learning with local communities.
- Project sustainability.
These grant efforts will be made to internationalize student experiences and strengthen connections with Cornell Global Hubs. The collaborators of these grants include seven Cornell faculties with seven partner universities across four Hubs.
Apart from this, Global Cornell is also offering joint research and education grants to Cornell faculty that wish to explore research and teaching collaborations with colleagues at Global Hubs universities. Applications dates are due on October 21.
The five ICC-funded projects as listed in the Cornell Chronicle:
- Think Globally, Act Locally: Comparative Perspectives on Community Engagement in the U.S. and Ecuador
- Rethinking Bamboo: A Material and Architectural Study of Southeast Asian Bamboo Construction
- Global Health and Environmental Justice
- Experiential Writing in Mexico: Environmental and Cultural Communication
