Webster's GCP Featured by AAC&U
Webster's Global Citizenship Program (GCP) was featured as the top story in the latest newsletter of the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U).
The story shares insights from Webster faculty members Bruce Umbaugh, Stephanie Mahfood, and Julianna Sandholm-Bark about how the general education program was designed and implemented, with examples of courses that enable learning outcomes across the curriculum.
The story also shares the experience of Katie Fields '19, a recent graduate with a BS in business administration and a BA in management who says she "feel(s) like a totally different person because of the GCP courses I took. ... Because of the GCP, I was able to match my skill set with my passions, find my dream job, and make connections along the way.”
