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

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

At George Mason University (Mason) the Office of Equity and Diversity Services Training Division offers two courses specifically on Cultural Competency and Awareness. The first course, Diversity and Cultural Awareness, introduces participants to ideas regarding diversity and its benefits. Participants explore ways to recognize differences that are not always apparent on the surface. The second course, Cultural Awareness to Cultural Competency, is an interactive and experiential training that explores skills that go beyond recognition of cultural differences. This training includes the best methods to adapt or address these differences through diverse group experiences. The scenarios used to teach these diversity concepts are tailored to faculty and staff issues.
