Description 
This course is meant to analyze and explore global perspectives. The audience of this class is the Global Village Learning and Living community of Fall 2016. The purpose is to expose students to a variety of ways to view global citizenship. Three primary questions motive this class (How do I know? Who am I? and How do I relate to others?). In order to answer these questions, three domains, Cognitive, Intrapersonal, and Interpersonal, have been identified as lenses to understanding global perspectives. Within each domain are two core competencies (Cognitive: knowing and knowledge, Intrapersonal: identity and affect, and Interpersonal: social responsibility and social interactions). Each competency will be explored through two week modules conducted by professors across disciplines. After completing this course, students should be able to understand, articulate, and engage with the pluralistic development of our society.
