Global Community Development Partnerships

The Global Community Development Partnerships minor builds competencies in intercultural sensitivity, diversity, understanding communities, and a prominent sector of development work in order to partner effectively with communities on projects.  Students must complete a hands-on immersion experience that aligns with their chosen development sector. The minor places a strong focus on working in cross-cultural and diverse communities, which directly aligns with these university learning goals: global literacy, social responsibility and ethical reasoning. The minor curriculum is designed to pair well with earning a Peace Corps Prep certificate. Peace Corps Prep is an official university partnership with the U.S. Peace Corps for undergraduates.
