Global Solutions Sustainability Challenge

IREX, a nonprofit dedicated to global development and education, is sponsoring the Global Solutions Sustainability Challengea virtual exchange initiative where your students can work with peers in Iraq or Jordan to tackle a global issue. Faculty can lead a group of students in this challenge as part of their spring 2021 course, or as an extracurricular activity (this may work if you are an advisor for a student club). Faculty will receive training and support throughout the program, as well as a very modest honorarium. 

The deadline to apply is November 15.

The program usually involves courses from Business and Entrepreneurship, but they have also had successful projects with students in English, Global Studies, History and Computer Science courses.
