Today we recognize Sara Young as our Student Spotlight.

Sara Young, current Global Citizenship Certificate student and FSU senior pursuing a dual bachelor’s degree in psychology and East Asian studies, received a Global Citizenship Certificate Scholarship and will participate in a Global Exchange at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, during spring 2022.

The Global Citizenship Certificate Scholarship was established in 2017, to provide high-achieving GCC students with a scholarship to go on one of FSU’s 40+ Global Exchanges worldwide. Applicants must be accepted into a Global Exchange before applying.

Young is currently working on her honors thesis and will complete it before arriving at Waseda University. “I plan on networking with Japanese psychologists and psychology professors at the institution, and possibly reworking my thesis or looking for more research opportunities while I am there,” Young said.

The Global Citizenship Certificate program allows FSU students to expand their knowledge about how to navigate today’s highly globalized society while developing vital intercultural skills. Students take a total of four academic courses (one required course and three electives from a list of 500+ liberal studies courses); attend eight intercultural events; and complete one sustained experience.

“Even though I am Colombian and share cultural similarities with people from other Latin American and/or Caribbean countries, I’ve always been curious about distinct differences in culture and have had an interest in learning while keeping my own subjectivity in mind,” Young said. “Enrolling in the certificate program helped me to educate myself more about different cultures around the world and helped me alter cultural attitudes I subconsciously held without realizing it.”

Young is a first-generation college student and has achieved many triumphs during her time at FSU such as making it into President’s List for the fall 2020 semester. She was recently accepted into FSU's Honors in the Major program, Psi Chi at FSU, and the Gold and Garnet Scholar Society.

Happy Monday! Thank you for visiting the Global Citizenship Program at Florida State University.

GCC is a unique opportunity to gain intercultural experience as an FSU student. Out of the 4 academic courses we require, 1 must be Global Perspectives while the other 3 may be approved elective courses (you can choose from a list of 500+ FSU liberal studies courses).

Remember you can attend an info session every Tuesday at 3pm and every Thursday at 4pm in The Globe (GME) Room 2600!

Learn more about GCC requirements on our website: cge.fsu.edu/globalcitizen.

Join us on Wednesday, October 27, at 5 p.m. on Zoom for a panel discussion examining the concept of vulnerability as a strength.

Dr. Ayesha Khurshid, Associate Professor of Gender and Education in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, and three Ph.D. students in the International & Multicultural Education program – Jingyi You, Brittany Closson-Pitts, and Melba Marin-Velazquez – will share four unique stories of women from their research projects.

This event counts toward Global Citizenship Certificate as an educational intercultural event.

Today we are excited to shine the spotlight on Cassidy Willever!

Cassidy Willever, Global Citizenship Certificate and FSU alumna pursuing a master’s in demography with Florida State University - The College of Social Sciences and Public Policy, claims her active involvement in the GCC program prepared her to pursue graduate school here at Florida State University.

"Through the Global Citizenship Certificate , I was able to meet advisors and mentors that supported me in my pursuit of grad school,” Willever said. “Their enthusiastic support and willingness to write me recommendation letters helped me get accepted into FSU’s Master’s in Demography program.”

Students enrolled in FSU’s Global Citizenship Certificate take a total of four academic courses (one required and three electives from a list of 500+ liberal studies courses); attend eight intercultural events; and complete one sustained experience.

“I enrolled in the certificate because I have always loved learning from and about other cultures,” Willever said. “The Global Citizenship Certificate gave me an outlet to continue learning about other cultures and earn a certificate along the way."

Willever took Global Perspectives, the certificate’s required course, during the first semester of her freshmen year as an exploratory student. To complete the GCC’s sustained experience requirement, she served as a Peer Mentor for the Center for Global Engagement’s Special Programs in hospitality management and intercultural communication for international students who complete FSU courses and engage in work-integrated learning at Walt Disney World® Resort.

“I am thankful because being a Peer Mentor was one of the most rewarding experiences I had as an undergrad. Furthermore, going through the Global Citizenship Certificate program affirmed my desire to continue working and traveling on a global scale," she said.

Willever is currently serving as the Student Assistant for the Global Citizenship Certificate. She helps undergraduate students enroll in the program. Students learn more about global issues and develop intercultural skills valued by employers and graduate schools; the overall experience helps them become ready to succeed in a diverse and multicultural world.

Happy Monday, FSU!

Today, we are excited to highlight CGE staff member, Dr. Tanu Kohli Bagwe, Acting Program Director and Teaching Faculty for the Global Citizenship Certificate.

Dr. Kohli Bagwe joined the CGE's staff in 2017. She is an award-winning faculty member and higher education professional. She earned her Ph.D. and M.S. in Global Affairs from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

She guides undergraduate students both inside and outside of the classroom as they develop intercultural skills and a deeper knowledge of global issues.

Over the past 10 years, she has specialized in teaching globally focused, interdisciplinary courses on globalization, international development, global migration, and intercultural communication. Her experience in public, R-1 institutions has given her the ability to leverage low-cost, yet effective, strategies of active-learning, flipped classrooms, hybrid, and online learning for undergraduate classes.

In 2020, Dr. Kohli Bagwe won the Ralph Stair Prize for Innovative Education along with Dr. Elçin Haskollar, GCC Program Director. This prestigious award is given to faculty who develop "innovative education approaches that demonstrate the potential of having great impact nationally and internationally." Dr. Haskollar and Dr. Kohli Bagwe set up a very successful Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) project by partnering with faculty members at Faculdade de Tecnologia de São Paulo, a Brazilian University, so students from their classes could interact with one another and develop deeper intercultural competencies and expand their worldview.

Dr. Kohli Bagwe has received multiple honors and grants during her time at FSU, including the Undergraduate Teaching Award (2020) for overall teaching, Student Mentor Award (2020) for research mentorship, and the Teaching Advancement Grant (2017) for course innovations. Dr. Kohli Bagwe further specializes in diversity and inclusion and effective teaching strategies for the professional development of graduate students, faculty, and staff.

We are extremely proud to have Dr. Kohli Bagwe as a part of our faculty and family!

Today we're pleased to shine the spotlight on Arria Hauldin!

Arria Hauldin – Global Citizenship Certificate and Florida State University alumna with a bachelor’s in anthropology from FSU College of Arts & Sciences – currently serves as an AmeriCorps VISTA member in the state of New Hampshire with a focus on COVID-19 recovery in the local community.

In her role, Hauldin works with Campus Compact New Hampshire, a national coalition of colleges and universities striving to ensure access and equity in higher education through community service and civic involvement.

Hauldin credits the Global Citizenship Certificate program with making her a more competitive applicant as she applied for jobs after graduation. Her involvement in GCC was a core focus of her interviews.

“A lot of my passions and work revolve around service, both international and domestic, and the GCC helps showcase my unique set of skills while also serving as a great conversation opener during interviews,” Hauldin said. “It showed that I am dedicated to intercultural learning beyond the classroom and that I continually strive for cultural competency in my professional and personal environments.”

Hauldin was offered the opportunity to serve in Peace Corps Mongolia, which is currently on hold due to COVID-19. While waiting to depart for the Peace Corps, Hauldin applied for her current AmeriCorps position.

“The Global Citizenship Certificate provided me the tools to think of solutions beyond my lived experiences and branch out to include a more community/global perspective,” Hauldin said. “I also see the GCC helping me stand out among future applications to fellowships, such as Fulbright, because it shows my dedication to the global community by starting my teachings at home.”

Tiffany is a Spring 2020 GCC graduate currently working at the FSU Office of Human Resources as a Program Associate! She completed her degree in Political Science and International Affairs.

Tiffany thanks the GCC for her professional preparation, “Being involved in another organization on campus familiarized me with the inner workings of FSU, which I can apply to my current FSU career. In my position, I handle the front desk and am the first face people see when coming to the office. The GCC gave me the intercultural communication skills needed to interact with the variety of people we serve daily.”

The Miamian’s advice to future graduates, “Do not be discouraged if you did not get the first position you applied for. Sometimes you need to fail in order to succeed. You never know what lies ahead!”

In April, we introduced you to Ava Alfaro-Barber. Ava is a GCC student who spent her summer in Perugia, Italy through FSU Global Exchanges.

We all felt safe walking around the city center and exploring the multiple historic aspects of the city, such as the museums and the Rocca Paolina."

August 9 of every year marks the United Nations’ International Day of the World's Indigenous People. This day marks the signing of Resolution 49/214 which promises to increase awareness of the contributions made by and struggles to achieve global social justice by over 5000 indigenous communities over the world.

It is also an opportunity to consider the very question of who is indigenous to whom, and the paths we have taken which have created the need to remind ourselves of the contributions of these 5000+ indigenous communities around the world.

Please take a moment to celebrate indigenous peoples everywhere and their contributions to traditions, languages, and knowledge, and recognize that we have a long way to go!
