Global Scholar Committee Process
A primary function of the Global Scholar Committee (GSC) is to evaluate existing programs and curricula to ensure that students are able to meet requirements for the Illinois Global Scholar Certificate. This means that members of the GCS must conduct an audit of current courses and opportunities available to students and, if necessary, adjust or add new courses or opportunities. The Global Scholar Committee must also determine the best pathway for students to complete the Illinois Global Scholar Performance-based Assessment. Below are the four requirements students must complete to receive the Illinois Global Scholar Certificate along with parameters established by the Illinois State Board of Education.
