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

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The University of Maryland has a Words of Engagement: An Intergroup Dialogue Program that is an initiative of the Office of Diversity & Inclusion. The program brings together students from various social identity groups with a history of tension or conflict between them. Facilitated by trained and experienced facilitators, participants confront those tensions in order to build bridges across groups.
Also the University of Maryland, School of Public Health has a website on cultural competency and health disparities. Developed to help health professionals, public health practitioners, students, and others find information on cultural competency and health disparities.
There is a UMD Summer Diversity Conference for all students, faculty, and staff as well. This Conference involves presentations focused on current directions in research and practice in cultural competence, diversity, and psychological health, with an emphasis on basic science findings and their real-world application.
