Internationalizing the FYE

Internationalizing the First Year Experience at IUPUI and Ivy Tech

Supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language Program, the IUPUI Office of International Affairs, in partnership with Ivy Tech Community College, hosts an annual workshop series for First-Year Experience course instructors interested in integrating high-impact global learning practices into their curriculum. In the workshop series, instructors of Bridge and First-Year Seminars will learn how to teach toward global competencies and encourage students to pursue global learning opportunities during their time at IUPUI, including international studies coursework, world language learning, study abroad, and global careers.

This initiative seeks to expand opportunities to cultivate global mindsets to every student on campus, including individuals from racial and economic groups who have historically been underrepresented in traditional global learning experiences.
