Global & Cultural Learning


Objectives for students in the Global and Cultural Learning Program:

  • Comprehend diverse/global perspectives and values
  • Acknowledge that different groups have different perspectives on the same issues and occurrences
  • Function more effectively as members of an increasingly multicultural society
  • See the world through multiple perspectives of diverse people
  • Recognize the commonalities all humans share
  • Develop an appreciation of the diversity of human culture
  • Appreciate values, customs, and social systems of various cultures

Global and cultural awareness stems from a critical analysis of and an engagement with complex, interdependent global and cultural systems and legacies (such as natural, physical, social, economic, and political) and their implications on people’s lives. Through global and cultural awareness activities, students should:

  • Become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences
  • Seek to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities
  • Address the world’s most pressing and enduring issues collaboratively and equitably
  • Work cooperatively with people from populations different than their own
