Curriculum Modules 2023 - Fulbright-Hays GPA Program

Fulbright-Hays Group Project Abroad (GPA) Program

The four-week Fulbright-Hays GPA program was held in South Africa in the Summer 2023. The Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad Program (GPA) is a national, federally-funded program by the U.S. Department of Education, with partial support from California State University, Los Angeles. Participants used the resources, instruction, information, experiences, and environments they were exposed to in the Zulu GPA program to produce the curriculum models below. They developed innovative assignments and in-class exercises that made use of indigenous cultural materials. The modules they created were designed to:

  • Improve students’ knowledge of Zulu worldviews and African cultural perspectives.
  • Develop social and cultural participation skills and awareness that will help students engage in effective cross-cultural and cross-ethnic interactions to be better citizens in a culturally plural world.
  • Help students to apply the principles of liberation, freedom, and social justice to address issues of identity, power, and privilege and contribute to the advancement of local communities, nations, or the world.
