  • Stephanie Bianco

    "I am still amazed by the practicality and relevance of the GCCUT curriculum; it's designed and balanced so intentionally. It provided me with solid tools and a foundational theoretical knowledge, all the while inspiring a deep appreciation for the nuances and stoking a sense of wonder in the power of education. "

    Stephanie completed the GCCUT program in 2018 and graduated from OSU with an M.S. in Water Resource Engineering in 2018. She is currently a Program Coordinator and Student Services Advisor at the University of California, Berkeley.

  • Lauren DiCarlo

    "The GCCUT program taught me how to develop enriching and experiential courses. It prepared me with a well-rounded teaching portfolio and a detailed teaching philosophy that I believe helped me in being selected for an interview. During my interview, I was able to use a short hands-on teaching activity that I designed in the GCCUT program during my teaching demonstration."

    Lauren completed the GCCUT program in 2016 and graduated from OSU with a Ph.D. in Fisheries and Wildlife in 2018. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Environmental Science at Westfield State University.

  • Christina Smith

    "I became close friends with some GCCUT students, all of which have continued on or will be continuing to jobs in higher education. GCCUT was a community that gave me the opportunity to think deeply about my teaching, both practically and theoretically, and was a great support when I would struggle with graduate student stress or insecurities."

    Christina completed the GCCUT program in 2016 and graduated from OSU with a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 2017. She is currently the Assistant Director for Undergraduate Instructional Development at Brown University.
