How Can Faculty Participate?

Through the US Department of Education UISFL grant, awarded this fall, we are able to offer a modest honorarium for up to 10 faculty members over the next 18 months to embed a global perspectives module into their elected courses.

Faculty will infuse a course lesson with global perspectives through the implementation of a learning module. Learn how to incorporate a module.

Apply for travel funds

Among the goals of JCC’s new federal Undergraduate International Study and Foreign Languages (UISFL) program is the development of additional study abroad and international internship opportunities for our students. To achieve this goal, the grant includes funding to support faculty members to travel abroad for each year of the grant (2016-17, 2017-18) to develop the partnerships and framework for new opportunities in study abroad and international internships.

All faculty members are invited to submit proposals for funding to be reviewed on a rolling basis. Proposals for either academic year are now being accepted. Learn more about travel funding.

Learn more about CLAC modules

Culture and Language across the Curriculum (CLAC) is a means of infusing multicultural and multilingual opportunities throughout the curriculum. The exploration of global perspectives is a valuable experience in any content course and such endeavors better prepare our students to participate critically in our current world. CLAC may take a variety of forms, such as a course linked to study abroad, as a series of content-specific discussions conducted in a language other than English, or as a research project attached to a non-language content course. Learn more about CLAC.
