What is Global Citizenship Distinction?
Global Citizenship Distinction (GCD) at Brookdale is an academic enrichment program open to all degree seeking students at Brookdale Community College regardless of major or GPA. The GCD Initiative is a recognition program for students who engage in globally focused curricular and co-curricular activities as they pursue a degree. The purpose of the Initiative is to provide a framework to prepare students for both academic and professional endeavors in a global context while encouraging them to become global citizens.
Students enrolled in the GCD Initiative will complete a variety of globally focused courses (minimum of 12 credits) and participate in a variety of curricular and co-curricular events and experiences that will broaden the students’ exposure to diverse cultures, global issues and intellectual debate. Students who have participated in and successfully achieved the requirements will be recognized for their exceptional efforts at graduation with Global Citizenship Distinction.
Students who complete the Initiative requirements will be recognized at graduation with honor cords, a Global Citizenship Distinction pin and a certificate of completion.
