Does the institution make cultural competence trainings and activities available to all students?:

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The Department of Counseling Psychology and Guidance Services at Ball State University is committed to the training and professional representation of students from diverse cultural and ethnic communities. As a reflection of this commitment, the department has established a Multicultural Programming Committee (MPC), which consists of interested faculty and graduate students. The MPC meets regularly to review issues relevant to providing a multicultural perspective in the training of all students in the program.

We are proud to support a diverse student population, including gay and lesbian students, persons with physical disabilities, and a variety of ethnic and international students from Canada, China, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Japan, Iceland, India, Palestine, South Africa, Taiwan, and Yemen.

Ball State offers a number of campus resources that meet the various needs of students. The Multicultural Center and Rinker Center for International Programs, among other organizations, sponsor the department and offer support mechanisms and direction for professional mentoring in addition to recruitment and retention efforts. The Office of Multicultural Affairs sponsors a variety of events centered on culturally enriching themes. Students will find that Ball State offers many organizations that will meet their professional, educational, and social needs.
