The Global Partner Certificate is a Center for Global Engagement Initiative that began in the Fall of 2010. It is designed for staff, faculty, or FSU graduate students who are committed to understanding and appreciating cultures and who are interested in learning how to better assist international students and scholars at FSU. The Certificate requires participation in four required Bridging Cultures workshops, plus 3 additional intercultural events, programs, or activities. Each type of program or activity may only be counted once.

The workshops must be completed in order as they build on each other. You have an entire year to complete all four.

NOTE: This is a professional development certificate, not an academic certificate. IT WILL NOT APPEAR ON YOUR TRANSCRIPT.
