“in student affairs, multicultural competence may be defined as the awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary to work effectively and ethically across cultural differences”
-connect with individuals from a different culture and communicate well
-design initiatives that are culturally-appropriate
-remain professionally in a different culture
What students learned about:
-how the higher education system works in each of the countries we visited
-how a country’s culture is different from ours
We try to understand:
Did students become aware of:
-the value of the cultural differences we experienced
-their own beliefs and biases
-the variety of ways to stimulate and embrace differences
