Students will achieve the student learning outcomes through two major approaches. One approach is an infusion of internationalized courses throughout the curriculum in the core curriculum, majors and upper level electives. The second approach is an elective Global Studies Certification in international competence. The Certification requires substantially more work, with substantive international content and depth, which includes curricula offerings, study abroad and foreign language proficiency.

Additional courses are being revised or developed to become internationalized courses each year. They are selected based upon an analysis of how the academic curriculum serves the five student learning outcomes. This curriculum analysis determines where in the curriculum additional internationalized courses are most needed. The QEP Steering Committee annually sets priorities for course development or revision and conveys those priorities to the School deans. The deans, in consultation with School QEP committees, identify specific courses that might be developed or revised to meet those priorities and select faculty to create course proposals. Next, the deans, in consultation with the QEP director, approve proposals for specific courses to be developed or revised.
