1. What is the application process?
a) Complete the application form found on the home page.
b) Email the application to Dawyn Dumas, Global Learning Specialist () at ddumas@kennesaw.edu. You will be notified that your application has been received.
c) The GLS will select two global learning specialists from a faculty/staff list to serve as evaluators. At least one of the evaluators will be from your major/program area.
d) After the evaluation, the GLS will notify you by letter and/or e-mail of the recommendation status of your application.

2. How long will the application process take?
Once the GLS has received your application, it should take about two weeks for you to be notified of your recommendation status.

3. Should someone apply when they reach the criteria for Certification or should they wait until
it is possible to achieve for Certification with Distinction?
It depends on when you are graduating. If you have time to complete the Certification with Distinction, you may want to wait until you complete those requirements. However, the decision is up to you.

4. If someone is turned down does the first time he/she applies, can he/she reapply later when
more criteria have been met?

Yes.

5. Can the same project be used for Section D (teamwork) and Section G (community service)?
Yes, but respond to the questions differently.

6. Does work with indigenous Americans qualify for Section D (teamwork)?
Probably not. The intent of the Certification is “global engagement.” This has been interpreted to mean international work with different nations and cultures. The Council recognizes that we have different cultures living amongst us even in Atlanta and work among such groups is valuable and rewarding, but such work cannot be used to meet the requirements of this Certification. However, if you feel you have a strong case, the Council will review it for consideration.

7. Does the American Red Cross Disaster Team qualify for Sections D or E?
If the American Red Cross Disaster Team involved service in another country, it may qualify.

8. Can the same study abroad trip be used for both Sections C and H?
Yes, as long as H was deep and for an “extended period of time.”

9. Can you give some examples of what might qualify for Section I?
The list could be endless, and it will be up to the evaluators to determine worthiness. Some examples would include: a certificate of appreciation for working with children in a country’s school system, leading a task-oriented group of students through an international improvement project, or receiving a letter of appreciation from a faculty member praising your leadership role in a specific global experience.
