GCD - Global Citizen

"Our story is more than numbers..."

The Global Citizen Diploma (GCD) is a validation of activities and experiences that students do in addition to their academics. Students showcase their stories with authentic audiences as GCD highlights the story of learning and growing through a range of lenses. Students are encouraged to burst the bubble while they express their voice and choice in the experiences that allow them to achieve their personal excellence. By documenting their stories, students will be able to share them with future universities and employers. The GCD encourages reflection, learning and connection.

As Global Citizens, our students live their lives with a promise to understand others, make decisions with the awareness of its effect on the local and global communities while advocating for responsibility for sustainability.

Together with 5 other schools around the world, NIS offers students the chance to reveal who they are and how experiences have shaped them. These stories weave together a memory and the language of GCD sending a clear message that our students are more than numbers.
