Cultural Competency Modules in the Disciplines

The modules explore the impact of culture in the practice of specific disciplines, and the importance of cross cultural competence for professionals in various academic fields to better understand and serve different populations. These modules can vary in duration from one to three class periods. The modules can be tailored to suit the specific needs of the faculty who request them.
