Grand Challenges Curriculum - Spring 2016

The Grand Challenge Curriculum (GCC) addresses important global issues through a solution-driven, interdisciplinary approach to learning. GCC courses are co-taught by cross-disciplinary instructors who bring unique perspectives to the Grand Challenge being explored. Spring 2016 courses will explore health challenges; renewable energy; climate change from the perspectives of art, science, and policy; and more! Learn more at z.umn.edu/GrandChallenge
