Does the institution make cultural competence trainings and activities available to all students?:
A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:
The Center’s Leadership Certificate Program provides students with the opportunity to learn leadership skills and experiential education opportunities to apply critical skills. Programs and certificates include: Personal Success Skills, Organizational Leadership, Global Leadership, Women's Career Leadership Program, Social Change Service Leadership Certificate, and Transfer Student Leadership Certificate
The Center’s Global Leadership certificate program is divided into three components; mentoring, global awareness and leadership. The mentoring component is an opportunity for an upper-class student to become a mentor to a fellow student. Global awareness provides a thoroughly enriching dialogue regarding race and ethnicity, which are both social constructs. An additional significance of the certificate is the pairing across ethnicities. This pairing provides an opportunity to learn and study with another student from a cultural background and experience that is different from your own. This certificate program helps set the foundations for the workplace where students will eventually work with people from around the world.
