Addressing Racism Through Global Competence
Helping students address racism, inequity and injustice.
Global competence is multi-faceted and includes cognitive development, social emotional skills, and civic learning. It has four overlapping dimensions that all students will need to develop in order to interact successfully with people face-to-face as well as virtually in their communities and in other regions and nations. Skills in these dimensions are also needed to examine and work toward the resolution of issues with local and global significance. Globally competent students investigate the world, recognize perspectives, communicate ideas, and take action. To learn more about global competence, click here.
Opportunities for global learning are all around us. In this section, we will provide resources and materials to help you think about global competence as a framework to support education for equity. The intent is to get students thinking about the world differently and empowering them to take action on issues related to race, racism and social justice.
