Teacher Preparation Program

We're here to help you!

Global Cohort Program

The Global Educators Cohort Program (GECP) prepares future teachers who are committed to preparing today’s children for tomorrow’s world.

The Global Educators Cohort Program (GECP) gives future educators the tools they need to teach with a global view and to make an impact in today’s classrooms, which are increasingly culturally diverse. Through social and educational experiences, MSU’s Global Educators are prepared to help young people think about themselves as citizens and stewards of the world around them.
