Abstract

This study aims to determine the views of students and lecturers on the importance of the character of global diversity and the role of the Citizenship Education course in Higher Education. The research method uses case studies, where the research subjects involve: (1) students taking Civics courses at Unimed; (2) lecturers in the Citizenship Education course; and (3) three Citizenship Education experts. The results of the study show (1) the character of global diversity needs to be strengthened in students. This is necessary in the midst of various challenges, threats and disturbances in all aspects of life; (2) Citizenship Education strives for the realization of students as citizens who can strengthen the character of global diversity; and (3) Citizenship Education needs to contain learning that can provide students with experience of being in line as part of Indonesia's multicultural society.
