The recent PISA Study on Global Competence, conducted by the OECD, has shown a vital need to prepare students for living in an increasingly interconnected world. One tool to develop the essential, lifelong “power skills” so invaluable for 21st century life and success is the AFS Global Competence Certiﬁcate (GCC). This online, research-based program offers intercultural content, framed in an experiential learning approach. UNO students can now apply to earn this certificate, first offered in January 2021, and gain tangible global competence skills: collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, cross-cultural communication, open-mindedness & flexibility.
