In preparing cadets to be officers, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (CGA) is committed to developing "the whole person." CGA has increasingly developed program-specific ways to achieve educational goals and learning outcomes. While character development and ethical education have long been important learning outcomes, today's CGA curriculum has incorporated multicultural concepts and inter-cultural perspectives to encompass learning about problems and issues that cut across national boundaries. This paper discusses how student learning, growth, and development can be achieved in an undergraduate program to ensure that graduates are prepared to meet the many challenges they will face throughout their professional careers and lives in an increasingly global environment.
