We will provide a brief overview of DU Grand Challenges themes and pedagogical practices that align with the themes. Next, we will review examples of how faculty have integrated DUGC into their courses and engage in small-group brainstorming to explore connections within participant FSEMs. We will then review how DUGC can support students’ academic and public identity development beyond the classroom through programs like DUGC Student Scholars and ACE grants. Finally, we will review resources to support faculty involvement in DUGC including class grants and paid mentorship opportunities.

New Spanish Option for students:

New Spanish course we are offering this Fall for students interested in reinforcing their grammar before starting with 2100 (our writing intensive course). Often First-Year students that have experience with Spanish place at 2100 and don’t want to do the 2001-2-3 course series, but find 2100 is too advanced. This course has been created to fill that gap. See the flier below for details.

Hi All-

Virginie the Director of Center for World Languages and Cultures  asked me to share this information with you all.  This is a video explaining the FOLA requirements. Its target audience is our students, but this might be helpful to you all as well. I’m also attaching a revised flowchart based on this video she shared.  Please contact Virginie with questions or if you have anything she can assist you for advising your students.
