The Global Awareness Program (GAP) can help distinguish you as a Jayhawk ready to lead in a global society. From courses and study abroad programs to on-campus cultural activities, GAP expands your cultural knowledge and helps you respectfully navigate multiple perspectives. The certificate showcases your cross-cultural communications skills, willingness to learn from others, and leadership skills to future employers.

By enrolling in GAP early in your college career, you can track your progress on the three components: Academic, On-Campus Activities with a global focus, and/or International Experience. You need to complete only two-out-of-three components to earn the certificate. If you complete all three, you earn GAP with Distinction.




  Certification with Distinction is noted on certificate only, and may be added at a later date.
