Globally Aware

The understanding and ability to work within a global economy

Global awareness attribute is an effort to include the international audience within the UC setting. Having a range of global connections can help produce and prepare students with skills to work on an international scale. Developing this ability also helps increase cultural awareness, which is a useful skill for overseas working opportunities. Being able to understand cultural backgrounds and values prepares them for a range of international work settings, which will increase their experiences and career options.

Learning global awareness is also a gateway to creating an international-scale career or working overseas.
