The CISGO Executive Committee invites you to attend a “listening session” to give your thoughts and input into potential global learning outcomes drafted by the CISGO subcommittee charged with developing such outcomes.
University of Portland graduates demonstrate Holy Cross values in their interactions in the global community. They demonstrate eagerness to contribute to the greater good and well-being of the human family, humility, curiosity, and flexibility in the face of difference, and a willingness to learn from others who are culturally different. They are able to tolerate ambiguity and unfamiliarity. University of Portland students accomplish the following learning outcomes in the demonstration of these qualities:
