Developing Global Competence
All graduates will demonstrate active pursuit of global competencies* that are pillars of the learning experiences embedded throughout EDGE.
1. Investigate the World - Globally competent students are aware, curious, and interested in learning about the world and how it works.
2. Recognize Perspectives - Globally competent students recognize that they have a particular perspective, and that others may or may not share it.
3. Communicate Ideas - Globally competent students can effectively communicate, verbally and non-verbally, with diverse audiences.
4. Take Action - Globally competent students have the skills and knowledge to not just learn about the world but also to make a difference in the world.
