This essay is rooted in the belief that thinking “globally” does not always mean “internationally” and that global awareness begins with self-awareness. Often the idea of “global citizenship” remains abstract to students, and previous efforts to create global curricula suggest that students need more than theoretical knowledge to “develop their own agency as responsible actors in the world” (Sperandio, Grudzinski-Hall, & Stewart-Gambino 2010). Our National Endowment for the Humanities funded project, “Building Global Perspectives in the Humanities’’ (2018-2020), intentionally brought these ideas together to expand the quantity and quality of our institution’s global learning opportunities. **For more information, please visit Diversity Abroad and The Global Impact Exchange at https://www.diversitynetwork.org/GlobalImpactExchange
