This micro-credential recognizes and validates the learner’s successful completion of the University of Maine System (UMS) Global Competency pathway (Levels 1, 2 and 3). Learners successfully completed an instructional program and global experience that provided greater understanding and appreciation of other cultures and global issues. Throughout the process, they analyzed and applied their shared experiences, incorporating their learning into their academic work and/or shared their experiences through presentations in the broader community. Learners demonstrated global competency in the following skills: Cultural self-awareness, knowledge of other worldview frameworks, empathy with other global perspectives, intercultural verbal and nonverbal communication, intercultural curiosity and openness to diversity. The learners achieved a level of Global Competency that is critical to their full participation in our culturally diverse global society and competitiveness in a global economy. Evidence was verified and assessed using the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) Intercultural Knowledge and Competence Liberal Education and America’s Promise (LEAP) rubric by authorized UMS faculty/staff to ensure UMS micro-credential quality standards were met.
