Global Awareness Program


The Global Awareness Program (GAP) facilitates global engagement through academic coursework, co-curricular involvement, and international experience.  The program is open to all undergraduate students who wish to supplement their KU degree with GAP certification on their transcripts. Thanks to its interdisciplinary emphasis and flexibility, GAP prepares students to live, work, and lead in a global society.  Established in 2003, GAP is the first certificate program offered at the University of Kansas, and is proud to recognize and reward students for their participation in experiential learning for global understanding.
