Recognizing multiple perspectives and experiences is foundational to general education as it enables students to be productive in society and contribute to the quality of life. Seeing oneself as a member of a global community means appreciating our shared future and how we use individual strengths to contribute to that future.
Students must complete 3 credit hours (one course) to satisfy this requirement.
Individual and Global Citizenship Student Learning Outcomes:
- Students will assess how multiple perspectives and experiences, especially those previously underrepresented historically and currently, manifest in societies.
- Students will apply conceptual or theoretical frameworks to issues on a local, regional, national, and/or global scale to understand how overlapping experiences affect people individually and as groups.
- Students will demonstrate intercultural knowledge and competencies and a sense of community through interaction with the cultural, material, spatial, and/or historical dimensions of the diverse world around us.
