USF's Global Citizens Project is a university-wide initiative aimed at enhancing undergraduate students' global competencies through the
development of new and improved curricular and co-curricular experiences. The project offers faculty development opportunities in order
to incorporate global issues, including sustainability, into existing courses and pathways. Global Pathways are undergraduate major or
degree programs that have significant global content. .
