Thanks to Susie McCurry ’71 and the Rolan and Ruby Holden Foundation, the Center for International Studies will offer two brand new Global Learning Program (GLP) Tutorials in the spring semester for first-year students. The purpose of the annual GLP Tutorials is to provide students a better understanding of a place outside of their home country and to understand their home country in a global context. As such, both tutorials will take trips abroad to enhance the curriculum.
The GLP Tutorials this semester are: “Tolerance and Intolerance: What is Enlightenment Today?” (co-taught by David Harrison, French, and Dan Reynolds, German) and “ Origins of Liberal Education” (co-taught by Mirzam Pérez, Spanish, and Aysha Pollnitz, History). Both of these courses will travel to France, Germany, and Austria and Italy, Spain, and Mexico City, respectively, during Spring Break or after final exams in May.
To apply, first-year students must complete an application, link below, in addition to doing the normal application. The student must have two recommendation forms (one from their current, fall semester Tutorial professor and another from a faculty or staff member).
