Global Competence Initiative (GCI)
The Global Competence Initiative program at Oakland Catholic is designed to address the need for a workforce which is globally aware and culturally fluent in our increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.
GCI encourages students to cultivate a global perspective by broadening their knowledge of the concerns, challenges and achievements of the wider world in preparation for their futures as college students and globally engaged citizens.
After fulfilling academic and program requirements over a four-year period, students will receive a Certificate in Global Competence, signifying their completion of the program and their dedication to becoming responsible and respected global leaders.
- Do I need to take honors classes or have a certain QPA to participate?
- Can I be a Joan of Arc Scholar and pursue a Certificate in Global Competence?
- Do I need to formally sign up for the program?
- If the commitment becomes more than I can handle, can I withdraw from the program without negative consequences?
