Global Perspective Inventory

The Global Perspective Inventory (GPI) is a web-based assessment of individual experiences and the development of a global perspective. Developed in 2008, the GPI emphasizes cognitive, intrapersonal, and interpersonal dimensions, which provide a holistic approach to assessing learning and development. Nearly 200 colleges, universities, and educational organizations in the U.S. and abroad have used the GPI to assess intercultural competence, global learning, and study abroad experiences.

In July 2015, Iowa State University began hosting the GPI under the direction of Dr. Robert Reason, Director of the Research Institute for Studies in Education (RISE). Information about the GPI or possible participation should be directed to
