Tier2-3: Student Training Opportunities
Does the institution make cultural competence trainings and activities available to all students?:
A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:
Hart Hall Global Living and Learning Center is a special residential community found at SUNY Oswego for students focusing on academic excellence and social responsibility within a global context. Hart Hall offers a unique learning experience; It is our Global Living and Learning Center and is home to the majority of international students who choose to come to Oswego. As a Hart resident, students have the opportunity to live and learn side by side with people from all over the world. Incoming freshmen have the opportunity of receiving their general education credits for Western Civilization and Non-Western Civilization courses by choosing to live in Hart Hall for two years and completing a modified IST course. Students take the one-credit IST 190/390 each semester. This course requires attendance at six events per semester. The student then writes a one-page, double-spaced, reaction paper or participates in a discussion about each event they attend. There are hundreds of these events both within Hart Hall and throughout the campus each semester. These programs cover global issues about a variety of topics, including cultures, customs, beliefs, history, politics, and movements from around the world. The programs are also given in a variety of formats including presentation, demonstration, documentary, film, and discussion.
