Global Engagement Certificate

Based in the CSLC, Notre Dame’s Global Engagement Certificate (GEC) program rewards the learning and experiences you are already engaging in — and will stand out on your resume and show employers and graduate schools that you’re prepared to be a global citizen.

Students in any college or school can earn the certificate by taking two classes and participating in cultural activities on and off campus. You may already be well on your way to meeting the requirements. Earn your Global Engagement Certificate
