Global Learning (GLB) Course Attribute

Global learning is an essential part of a well-rounded education and is becoming exceedingly important in our globalized world and economy. To encourage the inclusion of global learning in all programs and disciplines, Weber State has many courses that have global learning as part of their learning outcomes.


  1. Students will become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.
  2. Students will seek to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities.
  3. Students will address the world's most pressing and enduring issues collaboratively and equitably.


  1. Review the criteria and prepare your syllabus. You are welcome to contact Faculty in Residence Dr. Stephanie Wolfe ( to schedule a quick meeting at your convenience to brainstorm global learning related ideas or to ask questions.
  2. Complete the simple GLB Attribute Request Form. Upon completion of this form, download a PDF of your responses as you will need this document later in the process.
  3. Create and launch a 1.7 Course Attribute Request in Curriculog (under "New Proposal").

Attach your syllabus and the PDF of your GLB Attribute Request Form. The application will require a detailed explanation of how global learning is reflected in the existing course (whether as the focus of the course or a component(s) of the course), the global learning-related learning outcomes, and a description of how you plan to assess those learning outcomes. 

New courses need to go through the regular college and university curriculum process for approval as courses, prior to or while simultaneously seeking the GLB attribution. 


Global Learning is "a critical analysis of and an engagement with complex, interdependent global systems and legacies (such as natural, physical, social, cultural, economic, and political) and their implications for people's lives and the earth's sustainability."
