Giveback Piece

Students are able to present on whatever topic they wish as long as the content relates to their experiences in their global competency portfolio.


We expect students to be available to speak to their poster for an hour. If you want ideas about where you can do a poster session International days "global village" is a great opportunity! For more ideas please contact the credential coordinator at
