Info on Global Competence

Harker’s Global Education programs are based on the 4 global competencies set forth by the United Nations’ Organization for Economic and Cultural Development. These competencies detail the knowledge, skills, and abilities students need to thrive in the 21st century. To “help students take their place as global citizens,” Harker’s globally competent students have the knowledge and skills to :

  • Investigate the World - Globally competent students are aware, curious, and interested in learning about the world and how it works.
  • Recognize Perspectives - Globally competent students recognize that they have a particular perspective, and that others may or may not share it.
  • Communicate Ideas - Globally competent students can effectively communicate, verbally and non-verbally, with diverse audiences.
  • 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.
