Presenters: Nathan Elliot and Faythe Aiken, University Village

connection
Connection
  • Make residents aware of campus and South Bend events and resources
  • Create and maintain social spaces throughout the complex
  • Programming
notre dame mission
Notre Dame Mission
  • “Residential life endeavors to develop that sense of community and of responsibility that prepares students for subsequent leadership in building a society that is at once more human and more divine.”
the importance of intercultural competence
The Importance of Intercultural Competence
  • Moving beyond a US-centric approach or “when in Rome…” (Bennett, 2001, p.6)
  • Supporting Graduate Students to “eradicate marginalization among underrepresented populations.”(Guentzel & Nesheim 2006, p.52)
  • “Diversity leads to higher performance only when members were able to understand each other, combine, and build on each other’s ideas" (Maznevski, 1994, p. 536)
intercultural research
Intercultural Research
  • Unique demographic in graduate housing with a significant gap in research
  • Previous research involves: international business, study abroad, expatriates living abroad (Norris, 2007)
  • One in twenty students are international – with an average of 5% growth over the last five years (Open Doors, 2011)
intercultural competence measures
Intercultural Competence Measures
  • Openness – the ability to be open to the other and to situations in which something is done differently (Norris, 2007, p.7)
  • Knowledge – the characteristic of not only wanting to know the hard facts about a situation or about a certain culture but also wanting to know something about the feelings of the other person (Ibid, p.7)
  • Adaptability – describes the ability to adapt one’s behavior and one’s style of communication (Ibid, p.7)
research questions
Research Questions
  • Does our programming increase intercultural competence?
  • What other factors influence competence?
  • Does merely living in proximity to others that are different affect competence?
research discussion
Research Discussion
  • Recruited population interest
  • Recruited population self-reports
  • Post-Test expectations significance in events attended quantity and variety
  • Insignificant findings
    • Average scores between US and International residents
    • Average scores between occupancy time
future possibilities
Future possibilities
  • Research
    • Larger sample of residents
    • Contrast Graduate Housing with Undergraduate Housing
    • Tie more explicitly to desired outcomes for ND graduates , by school or at University level
future possibilities1
Future Possibilities
  • Programming/Staff Initiatives
    • Partner with other departments to deepen intercultural programming
    • Examine ways to integrate intercultural components into ‘social’ and other programming
    • Continue to keep cross-cultural programming at the center of events
discussion
Discussion
  • Questions?
  • How does intercultural competence relate to your work?
