Students must prepare a synthesizing project which answers the questions below about their experience in pursuing the Global Perspectives Certificate. The project may consist of a poster, a paper (5 page minimum), PowerPoint presentation, video, website, physical display, or combination of media. Questions to be answered in the project and the required timeline are listed below.
Proposal and Mentor Selection
Before beginning the project, the students must create a proposal, and present it to their chosen GPC mentor for approval (see GPC List of Mentors). Students may choose any approved member of NC State’s faculty or teaching staff for this mentor role. If students have identified a possible mentor who is not currently approved, those faculty should sign up to become a GPC Faculty Mentor.
Submission and Public Presentation
The GPC mentor will be the students’ contact for advice, guidance, and assessment of the final project. The mentor makes the final recommendation to the GPC Advisory Board for overall certificate approval. After approval by the mentor, final projects must be made available to the wider community in some way, such as being presented on campus (classes, residence hall/student organizations, the study abroad fair, or other special events). A final copy of the final project must be submitted to the GPC Coordinator at email@example.com.
