Example #2

Below is a proposed plan of study for a student majoring in Chemical Engineering. Students select one area as depth experience (Global in this case).

GC Theme: Engineering Better Medicines

Depth Experience: Global Dimension

Research: I spent the summer of 2016 working on breast cancer research at the University of Colorado - Anshutz Medical campus. I worked approximately 400 hours in 10 weeks in the Lyons lab investigating the role of a protein of interest plays in breast tumor cell apoptosis, with the ultimate goal of creating a novel targeted drug delivery treatment. I plan to return to the Lyons lab this summer (2017) to continue this research.

Entrepreneurship: I plan on participating in Startup Weekend this academic year.

Global Dimension: Study abroad in South Korea for the fall 2016 semester.

Service Learning: I will tutor local high school students in math and science through Miami's service learning programs (at least 30 hours)

Interdisciplinary Component: ENG 313 Technical Writing (3 credits)
