What Global Learners Are Saying

“[Daring Compassion Movement Chaplaincy Training Course] is essential for those in ministry and lay church leadership whether or not they are planning to be active in a specific movement chaplaincy. It offers a chance for all of us to see others with new tools and a new lens.”
Sushama Austin-Connor
Founding Program Director,
Black Theology & Leadership Institute
Princeton Theological Seminary
"I recently accepted the position as Director of Graduate Programs of our department. This requires interacting with international graduate students. I feel that taking part in the [Certificate in Global Citizenship] course helped me better relate to them and the backgrounds from which they come."

"I really enjoyed [Wildness & Spirituality for the Common Good]. I found it helped me work through my concept of wild(er)ess and find ways to regularly reconnect with the wild. Aram's reflections and the resources he provided were amazing. I will be using this information for years to come."

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this an accredited school?

The School of Global Citizenry (SGC) is an independent, online, global citizenship education (GCED) continuing education institution for adult learners. Tumbuh Global, its parent company, is a member in good standing with the Association of Leaders in Lifelong Learning for Ministry (formerly SACEM); affiliated with the Religious Education Association. SGC offers only CEU approved courses that voluntarily mirror the IACET standards for religious, civic, and social professionals. All courses are adaptable for academic course credit (with prior approval). SGC does not confer academic degrees.

What does CEU and IACET mean?

CEU stands for continuing education unit. Religious, social, and civic leaders are often required to earn "CEUs" to show evidence of ongoing professional development. Our courses offer anywhere from 1-5 CEUs.

IACET stands for the International Association for Continuing Education and Training. To date, IACET is the highest standard available for continuing education. While most institutions do not have official IACET certification (largely cost prohibitive), some organizations still choose to mirror their high standards.

What is the Refund Policy?

On-demand course purchases are non-refundable. Scheduled course refunds are available until the start date of the course. If the course has already begun, no refunds are permitted. If, by chance, a scheduled course is cancelled, delayed, or rescheduled, you are entitled to a full refund (certain stipulations apply). 

How do I enroll a group?

If you want to purchase a group of seats, please contact us at for a personalized invoice and payment options. We will need the preferred first and last name of each learner and their corresponding email address to complete the group enrollment.
