This paper reports the institutional factors that correlate with global citizenship scores of graduate students. Results from a study of 200 graduate students at 2 Southern California Universities identified variables that are institutionally controlled and statistically significantly correlated with scores on the Global Citizenship Scale (GCS). Graduate students were surveyed so that variables from their previous degree granting institutions could be analyzed. Institutional data was collected for each school from the Integrated Post-Secondary Educational Data Set (IPEDS) and analyzed through regression analysis.
