The AHS Global Competence Program (GCP) is designed to foster students’ global awareness, and, in so doing, provide AHS graduates with the essential skills for participating in and contributing to an increasingly globalized society. GCP participants will:
- Think Globally: Have an increased knowledge of their relationship to the world; think about issues from a global perspective; gain an appreciation for other world cultures, viewpoints and perspectives.
- Communicate Effectively: Improve their foreign language skills and their ability to communicate with people across cultural and language divides.
- Contribute Responsibly: Use their global knowledge to interact and build relationships with people from other cultures; actively seek world knowledge to develop their own values and perspectives; demonstrate respect, open mindedness, understanding and flexibility in behavior and thinking; help others to embrace multiple perspectives.
