There is great value in learning how to cross borders and understand the perspectives of people different from yourself. The CCE credit challenges students to engage with cultures and communities other than their own, to prepare them for a lifetime of global citizenship.

CCE Learning Objectives:

Students will

  1. Articulate knowledge of their own culture and a culture different from their own.
  2. Engage effectively across cultures and, where appropriate, adapt to cultural expectations.
  3. Demonstrate understanding and discernment regarding cultural embodiments of values and faith traditions.
