Intercultural Competence Certificate

The Intercultural Competence Certificate for undergraduates will provide participants with multicultural competencies such as socio-historical knowledge and behavioral foundations, enabling them to connect effectively and interact productively with a diverse workforce. The certificate will not only expand individuals’ understandings about difference (racial/ethnic, economic class, gender, ability, sexuality) but also enable participants to design and implement cultural competence training within varied social institutions.

Upon completion of a certificate in Intercultural Competence participants will have acquired:

a. an increased sensitivity to diverse multicultural U.S. histories

b. an ability to interact respectfully and productively with diverse populations

c. a self-understanding through transformative self-reflection

d. the skills necessary to design and institutionalize cultural competent policies and practices within organizations such as businesses, schools, health services, social services, and more
