Building a Global Studies Certificate for All

October 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Please join us for a special fall session of our Global Studies Virtual Symposium, an event that connects global studies scholars and educators across community college campuses nationwide. The symposium offers an engaging teaching and learning forum for sharing best practices, ideas, and resources with colleagues.
During this special fall session, Janet Scott and Nicole Trevana Flores at Southeast Community College in Nebraska will explore the process of creating and implementing a Global Studies Certificate and subsequently an Introduction to Global Studies course, in order to obtain approval for the Certificate. In building the program, constant efforts have been taken to ensure a broad, yet specialized, course approval process. Janet Scott and Nicole Trevena Flores will also discuss the marriage between the Certificate and the Denizen program to allow students several options for an internationalized focus.
Janet Scott teaches Economics, International Business, and Intro to Global Studies at Southeast Community College. Janet grew up in Kenya, has traveled to 48 different countries, and has a passion for helping students explore new perspectives and find global connections. Janet has served on the SCC Global Education Team for ten years, and in 2016 was co-leader for SCC’s service-learning trip to Kenya. Over the last 6 years, Janet has worked with the Midwest Institute for International/Intercultural Education to develop and share curriculum modules to integrate international content into Principles of Economics courses.
Nicole Trevena Flores holds an MA in Counseling and Sociology. She is a licensed mental health counselor, teaches Psychology and Sociology, and graduate-level Multicultural Counseling. At SCC she is the “Global Education Coordinator” and Department Chair for Social Science, including the Global Studies Certificate, she has served in both roles since 2019.
