Bridging Domestic and Global Diversity is a leadership training program designed to increase intercultural awareness and skills, while enhancing understanding and connection through diversity. Focus is on increasing self-awareness while building intercultural leadership skills.
Participants in Bridging Domestic and Global Diversity will:
- Explore personal cultural background and understand how it effects your interaction with others.
- Demonstrate understanding of culture and how to navigate differences and cross-cultural conflicts.
- Explain dimensions of diversity, power and privilege, and why it is important to be a change agent.
- Experience building effective cross-cultural relationships and working in a multicultural group-setting.
- Facilitate a program to engage the campus community on diversity issues and raise awareness of these issues.
Bridging Domestic and Global Diversity has no costs and the program does not offer course credit for participating in it. Students who complete the program will receive a certificate and be recognized on the International Programs website.
