The importance of developing “cultural competence” is an essential part of any effort to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion across our campuses. This webinar focuses on the role of experiential learning approaches particularly critical service learning to develop cultural competence among students, faculty and staff. Join our conversation which will focus on:

  • Understanding the different dimensions of cultural competence that move beyond awareness and includes the development of knowledge, skills and practices.
  • How cultural competence impacts the student experience particularly among diverse student populations.
  • The impact of critical service learning on the development of cultural competence among students, faculty and staff.
  • How effective service learning can provide a “safe space” for self-awareness of cultural differences and one’s own cultural biases.
  • The effect of cultural competence on student preparation for careers and citizenship after graduation.
  • The need to move beyond awareness-raising activities alone as our approach for diversity, equity and inclusion and toward transferable knowledge, skills and behaviors.
