Keys to Success: Cultural Awareness and Global Citizenship defines cultural awareness comprehensively, including information about the four levels of development and the advantages of being culturally aware. Then it takes cultural awareness into the realm of action with a discussion of cultural competence, which involves adjusting behavior in ways that enhance relationships and communication. It continues the focus on practical action with an overview of what it means to be a global citizen, helping readers understand their place in the global community and their potential to make a difference. The final section presents ways that readers can take action as global citizens, including environmental stewardship and communicating effectively across the globe.

"The chapter works well in explaining why students today need to be more aware of what is going on globally and not just in their own little world. The chapter is well-organized and has good examples and exercises."
