In the winter of 2013, the final project focused the global food crisis and students planned and implemented "action plans" on the following topics: agrofuels, corn syrup, food justice and fair trade products.

CLNI 191: Teaching Global Action

Upper Division College Nine students are invited to apply to teach CLNI 85. Student instructors go through training in November and in Winter Quarter they meet weekly with an instructor to explore materials, techniques and tools to facilitate their own weekly section of 12-18 students for CLNI 85: Global Action.

"Teaching the College Nine 2-credit class, "Global Action" gave me the opportunity to further develop my facilitation skills, to design creative lesson plans and step outside my comfort zone. I really felt like I was able to lead my peers in discussions about various global issues. One of the coolest moments was learning about the different issues my students were passionate about and then watching their ideas turn to action projects throughout the quarter"
