The Center for Equity and Inclusive Excellence puts on an Intercultural Consciousness Certificate for faculty and staff to be a part of the fall dialogue process with fellow cohort members to experience intercultural consciousness, awareness of one’s own cultural identity and views about difference. Within the context of higher education this includes the ability to learn with and build on the varying cultural and community norms of students and their families. It is the capacity to understand the within-group differences that make each student unique, while celebrating the between-group variations that make our country a tapestry. This understanding informs and expands inclusivity and celebration of diversity in a teaching environment.
