Global competence is the capacity, knowledge, skills, and disposition to understand, analyze, and act on global opportunities and challenges. The educational objectives for Nebraska students should include global competence to better understand the cultural, economic, and military interaction and interdependence among people, states, and nations. It is imperative for students to have a current and historical knowledge of the civilizations and cultures of the world.  Through a better understanding of themselves and others, with respect for and recognition of the values and heritage of the United States, students will be prepared for successful participation in an interconnected world.
