International Mindedness Statement
International Mindedness is a commitment to celebrating our diversity where people know themselves and others, and demonstrate empathy by thinking globally and acting ethically. The three core components of international mindedness at DC are:
- Intercultural understanding – recognising and reflecting on one’s own perspectives, as well as the perspectives of others
- Global engagement – developing global and local awareness, perspectives and action, to empower learners committed to service in the community
- Multilingualism – the ability to communicate in a variety of ways in more than one language
