Global Citizenship Education

Global Citizenship Education

Centennial College has been recognized as a leader in internationalization for its work to actively infuse the principles of global citizenship, social justice education, equity and inclusion in the learning environment. Our Book of Commitments and Academic Plans detail how the Centre for Global Citizenship Education and Inclusion (GCEI) works with Centennial students and staff to actively engage with curricular and co-curricular learning that integrates the core elements of global citizenship and inclusion.

In 2006, Centennial launched the Signature Learning Experience (SLE) to prepare students for meaningful employment in an evolving global economy, while also becoming active global citizens.

In 2008, six Global Citizenship & Equity (GCE) learning outcomes were developed and since then, the Centre for GCEI has worked collaboratively with students, staff and faculty across each academic program to effectively integrate the GCE outcomes into the curriculum. The GCE 6 Global Citizenship and Equity learning outcomes have been embedded into 92% of all programs.

As a Centre, we endeavor to develop partnerships beyond the walls of the college to include both local and global opportunities for students to engage. Below are the areas in which the Centre engages and provides advising and consultation.
