The International/Indigenous Course Module (ICM) program provides an opportunity for the incorporation of an intensive international or Indigenous experiential module into the framework of existing undergraduate courses. ICMs usually take place over the November or February Reading Week, but an ICM can also take place in May for non-graduating students. At all times, travel must be completed prior to granting the final grade for the course. ICMs are designed to enhance students’ classroom learning through the application of course content to relevant settings and communities around the globe.
Faculty members and undergraduate students are invited to submit proposals for an ICM for the 2019-20 academic year. We especially encourage proposals from units or individuals that have not previously submitted applications. Funding is provided for one faculty member and for the Arts & Science (St. George) degree students enrolled in the course(s) in which the ICM is proposed. Support will be provided for ensuring student eligibility and safety abroad requirements are met.
