Minor Change to Syllabus
 To
track participation in the GLI

 To communicate to students and
entire campus community that GLI
is pervasive.
 To be included on all syllabi in
courses with global learning
components, even those not in the
Touchstone Program.
Syllabus Policy Language
“This course participates in the Global Learning
Initiative. The global learning component(s) of this
course is/are the following:” {insert list} For example, “a
comparison of the US Bill of Rights and the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights,” or “Students will read
nine culturally different versions of the Cinderella story,”

Courses in foreign language or those approved to meet
the Touchstone Program’s Global Perspectives
