First-year students: In your fall semester, apply for the Global Learning Program.
The Global Learning Program (GLP) tutorials for first-year students are spring semester-long courses that explore specific themes on global issues. The courses are interdisciplinary, so you’ll learn from a pair of Grinnell faculty from different areas of expertise. Then, as a group, the GLP culminates with field-based learning in least two countries, regions, or ecosystems around the world for a total of 3+ weeks during spring or summer break.
The GLP allows participants to:
- explore new cultures and places
- gain new perspectives
- discover personal and social responsibility
- acquire essential skills (such as adaptability, flexibility, and problem-solving)
- enhance the Grinnell College experience through engaged global learning
