CULTURAL COMPETENCE PROGRAM

We define Cultural Competence as:  The knowledge, attitudes, skills, and practices that allow individuals to form relationships and create learning environments that support the academic achievement and personal development of learners from diverse racial and cultural groups.

Our program is designed to:

• Recognize the educational impact of race and culture

• Address demographic inequities in achievement

• Build relationships across racial and cultural differences.

• Adapt curriculum to reflect racial and cultural diversity

•. Create ongoing self-reflection about cultural competence.
