The College of Creativity, Discovery and Innovation (CDCI) is the student-facing unit in the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning. Through the CDCI, we offer our Global Challenges courses, the PURE Awards and the CDCI Student Ambassador Program.
Global Challenges Courses
Take the lead in exploring complex global issues, ask important questions and solve problems that mean something to you in UNIV 201 and UNIV 203: Global Challenges Inquiry.
PURE awards provide financial support to University of Calgary undergraduates to conduct research for 8, 12 or 16 weeks between May and August, making it possible for students to work with University of Calgary researchers to learn how research projects are developed and conducted, and how research results can contribute to new knowledge and solve problems in a field of research and in society.
CDCI Student Ambassador Program
Become one of five student ambassadors, and contribute to developing the future of the Global Challenges Program. Ambassadors will contribute 30 - 40 hours/term of volunteer work, including service on a student led committee to advise the Global Challenges program development and participation in CDCI activities.
