Want to build intercultural competence at your college, university, or higher education organization?
Tell me if this sounds familiar...
Your institution has a mission statement, vision, or strategic plan that refers to something such as cultural or intercultural competence, global citizenship, cultural humility, internationalization, or similar, but it’s unclear how exactly that goal will be accomplished (it might even be unclear just exactly what that means).
Or maybe it is clear: the focus is on sending more students abroad and/or recruiting a more diverse student body.
But YOU know that’s not enough. Simply bringing people into contact with cultural difference is not going to magically make this a more inclusive, equitable world.
You know the institution needs to do more and you’d like to help lead the way. But you also know you can’t do it alone.
You recognize that producing more interculturally competent students starts by building intercultural capacity among the faculty and staff. But how do you do that?!
