The Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates (GIEU) Leadership Seminar provides leadership training and experience for exceptional students nominated by faculty from those having completed UC 275. In addition to participating in a group seminar, each student will be matched with a faculty mentor in preparing for and leading an upcoming GIEU field experience. These peer leaders will have two primary responsibilities: to help in team formation for the new field site; and to assist faculty members on site with logistics, peer communication, and organization. In addition to their practical experience, each participant will complete reflection exercises and essays. Core readings would include the intercultural work of Mitch Hammer and the Bennetts, sections from "Crossing Cultures: Insights from Master Teachers" by Nakiye Avdan Boyacigiller, Richard Alan Goodman, and Margaret Phillips, "Bridging Differences" by Goodykoontz, and several examples of group development and understanding exercises from various sources such as "Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice."

Intended audience: Students nominated by their faculty leaders in UC 275 would have a second year in GIEU as a field site assistant to faculty.

Course Requirements: Student nominees must submit application of interest and be matched with a faculty mentor. On-site assistance with Orientation, Retreat, Convocation, and Debriefing; attend UC 276 seminar sessions and separate debriefing; plan and lead at least one field team meeting; and complete field site duties delegated by faculty mentor. Students must complete written assignments reporting on their experience and evaluating their participation as a field team member.
