The Global Learning Across the Discipline (GLAD) Grants are made to faculty to undertake projects to integrate global learning into the curriculum. The GLAD grant provides funding up to $10,000 for teams composed of a minimum of three faculty members from one department or interdisciplinary teams from different departments or colleges. The grant funding is intended to initiate a curriculum revision process to define global learning outcomes for an academic program, design learning activities and course content that will allow students to demonstrate the outcomes, and develop an assessment process to determine whether students are achieving the outcomes. For the purpose of this initiative, global learning is defined “as the knowledge, skills, and attitudes students acquire through a variety of experiences that enable them to understand world cultures and events; analyze global systems; appreciate cultural differences; and apply this knowledge and appreciation to their lives as citizens and workers” (*Olson, Green and Hill, 2006).
