The Global Distinction Program at Isothermal Community College aims to equip students with the advanced skillset needed to successfully navigate the complexities of our interconnected world.
In a global society, students increasingly encounter people of differing cultures, ethnicities, languages, and perspectives. Knowing how to relate to those who come from other walks of life gives them a better chance of success in their personal and professional lives.
This program is a partnership between North Carolina community colleges and UNC-Chapel Hill’s Worldview program. The Global Distinction program focuses on discovering what it means to be a global citizen and how students can apply this knowledge to their academic, personal, and professional endeavors.
