The International House seeks to support all students, faculty and staff in their understanding of their own Intercultural Competency. Intercultural Competency is defined as the degree to which one can communicate and behave effectively and appropriate with someone from another culture. Intercultural competency consists of an awareness of one’s own culture, an awareness of cultural differences between people, and an ability to bridge those differences to establish meaningful connection with others.
Developing intercultural competence is an ongoing process and the International House staff can facilitate that development by providing student groups, campus staffs, or classrooms with curated workshops. Topics may include “What is Culture?” “Intercultural Communication” or “Working Together Across Cultural Differences”
