Graduation with Leadership Distinction

UNIV 401: Graduation with Leadership Distinction (GLD) is designed to support students in (1) integrating learning across within and beyond the classroom experiences that they have engaged in throughout their undergraduate career and (2) considering how they can apply that learning to make a difference in the future.  Students focus on one of four pathways:  Community Service, Global Learning, Professional and Civic Engagement or Research.  The course supports students in completing their GLD e-portfolio which includes sections on key insights, analysis, and leadership.  The technology used in creating the e-portfolio is simple and support is provided if needed.  The course focuses primarily on helping students discern their insights, articulate how their within and beyond the classroom experiences impacted their thinking, and consider how they can apply what they have learned to lead in the future.
