Student Learning Outcomes
Every undergraduate course and campus activity that is part of Global Learning for Global Citizenship empowers students to achieve the following learning outcomes:
Global Perspective: the ability to view the world from multiple perspectives
Global Awareness: knowledge of the interconnectedness of issues, trends, and systems
Global Engagement: willingness to address local, global, international, and intercultural issues
One example of these signature courses is Global Supply Chains, a core class that explores the ethical, environmental, and social repercussions of international business. Co-taught by a cultural geographer, engineer, and business faculty member, students in this course participate in a semester-long supply chain simulation and analyze current international case studies, providing a comprehensive, practical perspective on this critical global dynamic. Such interdisciplinary collaboration enables FIU students to develop a leading-edge knowledge base, one that enables them to understand and influence complex global issues. Students in global learning courses enhance and extend their scholarship through integrated co-curricular activities such as language and culture clubs, lecture and discussion series, film festivals, concerts, and art exhibitions.
