Higher Education Partners
We’re actively seeking new partnerships with institutions of higher education — including but not limited to the following offerings:
Offer the Global Competence Certificate
Launched by World Savvy in 2014, the Global Competence Certificate (GCC) is the premier, online, graduate-level certificate program in global competence education for teachers. The GCC program is designed specifically for in-service educators who are interested in embedding global learning into their teaching practice and preparing their students for the complex reality beyond the classroom.
Host a Pop-Up Design Challenge
We work with University partners in various locations to host Design Challenges, or Knowledge-to-Action (K2A) pop-ups. K2A pop-ups are one-day design challenges for middle and high school students to come together and create ideas for making change in their community. At a K2A pop-up, youth participants will work in groups to explore, interview, brainstorm, and build action around a question addressing an issue in their community. Interested in bringing a Design Challenge to your campus?
“We, at SNHU, are inspired by the leadership World Savvy provides in the global education field, and we’re excited to partner with them to offer broader access to the Global Competence Certificate to educators throughout the country. Powered by World Savvy’s expertise, the professional development embedded in this certificate has the opportunity to dramatically impact the development of our citizenship. SNHU is proud to partner in this exciting work.”
