Rules and Governance

Rules

There is no attendance policy for participating in the GLLP program. A student’s progress in the program depends on their active involvement in the GLLP experiences. Every student is responsible for keeping the track of their progress in the program. Students admitted to the first GLLP stage are expected to complete the required experiences in four academic semesters.

Students, who do not complete the first GLLP stage in four academic semesters, will be negotiated to leave the program. Students who complete the necessary requirements for any GLLP stage should negotiate with the GLLP program coordinator to receive their certificates. Semester-long study abroad experiences can be counted as half of the program requirements for any GLLP stage, if students work to deepen their study experiences by focusing on a specific environmental or social sustainability challenge (green energy, urban sustainability, migration, human rights, etc..) and involving key ecosystem actors (meetings, attending to events, networking, volunteering, etc.). Students should meet with the GLLP program coordinator in order to plan and design a study abroad experience based on GLLP values and principles.

Governance

GLLP is designed and coordinated by the Office of International Programs. The GLLP program coordinator at OIP is responsible for program administration and coordination. GLLP has an executive board who meets bimonthly for coordination and administration decisions. Executive board includes members from different Dean of Students units. GLLP advisory board include faculty members who have been involved in the GLLP program design since the beginning and meet once a year to oversee the program development.
