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

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The Contemporary University and Student Citizens is an introductory course designed for entering University of Colorado students. Using an undergraduate seminar format, students begin to explore the role of universities in open, civilized societies from antiquity to the present-day University of Colorado at Boulder. The course focuses on the academic and intellectual campus life; the role and responsibilities of the research university to the local, state, and international communities; and the human diversity represented within the campus community -- from the entering freshman to the distinguished faculty. The course concludes with a synthesizing project that involves the students in the campus's communities of their choosing.

Diversity is an integral part of the CU-Boulder community. The Hallett Hall Diversity Program offers a living and learning community committed to promoting diversity, both socially and academically. Students enjoy a supportive environment for acquiring personal awareness of their own and others' values as they relate to multicultural issues. The program offers a variety of social and educational activities, including field trips, debates, and other programs guaranteed to raise awareness and challenge societal assumptions of underrepresented peoples. Diversity themed courses are offered each semester, with priority enrollment given to Hallett residents. These classes are academically rigorous as well as socially current, and always fulfill a core requirement in gender and diversity. Co-curricular activities, offered by the student staff, complement academic pursuits.
