Upon completion of the Global Citizenship Cohort, the student will receive a certificate. However, the experience does not have to stop there as a second year portion can be pursued. More than receiving a certificate, the student will benefit by learning how to navigate the first year of university life and get accustomed to this new atmosphere and expectations. As well, meeting friends is often a huge bonus and students may even find themselves long-term, if not life-long friends. Academic and career benefits include growing in the four liberal education pillars, learning valuable skills through the organizing of a project; which may lead to future opportunities like becoming a board member of a community organization, and internal job opportunities like tutoring.
