Getting involved with Ideas for the World represents a commitment to learning beyond the classroom. The Ideas for the World certificate recognizes students who demonstrate sustained involvement in the program during their undergraduate degree.
"Credits" are earned for each program in which you attend at least 75% of the sessions. (For example, in an 8-week program, attendance is require for at least 6 sessions.)
The "credits" awarded are based on the number of hours involved in each program. Our community outreach programs are worth 2 "credits" each, and our discussion series are worth 1 "credit" each.
Note: Ideas for the World "credits" do not count towards your academic degree requirements, and do not appear on your transcript.
Certificates are awarded at the year-end banquet in April. All eligible students will be sent an invitation by the Ideas for the World Program Coordinator.
