Globalizing Curriculum

Austin Community College (ACC) International Programs in collaboration with the University of Texas-Austin Hemispheres Consortium will host a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) on globalizing curriculum for 2024-2025.

This two-semester program will engage with an interdisciplinary group of ACC faculty members in high-quality programming and collaborative discussions on globalizing community college courses with a focus on global citizenship, human rights, gender and women’s studies, peace and conflict studies, and other relevant topics. During the FLC, faculty members take an active role in shaping programming and discussions throughout the year.

With the ultimate goal of integrating global topics into their curriculum, the FLC provides the opportunity for ACC faculty to learn about global citizenship, human rights, gender and women’s studies, and other issues in various world regions and to have a collaborative and supportive space to discuss and work with their colleagues to develop new curriculum or programming that is inclusive, intersectional, and equity-minded.

Faculty will be treated to speakers from UT-Austin and elsewhere who will provide real-world examples and time-tested strategies to introduce these ideas into the classroom. Faculty will complete a project that serves to infuse global topics into their curriculum, such as creating a new module or syllabus, a course redesign, or some other culminating project of the faculty’s choosing.

Faculty will receive a $1,250 stipend for participating in the FLC. The stipend will be divided into two payments. The first payment of $500 will be issued in December 2024 after participating in the fall meetings, with the second payment of $750 being issued in May 2025 after participating in spring meetings. Stipend payments are contingent upon full participation and completion of the FLC requirements.

We will review all applications and select participants by May 6, 2024.


Participation is by application only.  The deadline to apply is April 26, 2024. We will review all applications and select participants by May 6, 2024.
