The Intercultural Competence Training Program provides both a 14-hour academic certificate for degree-seeking students only and a 9-credit academic badge. The badge is available to both degree and non-degree seeking students. Both programs are designed to give students the skills to interact sensitively and effectively with the rich diversity of people in our increasingly global community. Students will learn in an atmosphere of respect about the many kinds of difference that expand our human capacity and enrich our experiences. All undergraduate certificates have received Higher Learning Commission approval, and students are eligible for financial aid because they are seeking a degree.
Student learning outcomes include:
*Cultural Self-Awareness: Development of a demonstrated ability to articulate insights into their own cultural rules and biases; and
*Knowledge of Cultural and Worldview Frameworks Through Inquiry: Demonstrating a sophisticated understanding of the complexity of elements important to members of another culture in relation to that culture's history, values, politics, communication styles, economy, or beliefs and practices.
