The GTI team enjoys collaborating with and supporting our academic and administrative partners on campus in our efforts to promote greater understanding and cross-cultural competency. Below are the various ways we engage with other campus units.
GTI supports interfaith and worldview diversity engagement on campus. We have received Campus Innovation Grants from the Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 academic years.
The current IFYC Campus innovation Grant is supporting 4 campus initiatives:
- Lunch and Learn Series for Campus Professionals
- Alternative Service Break Experience to the Interfaith Center in Philadelphia
- On-campus student leadership development
- Regional leadership development and engagement: Ripple Interfaith Conference at Elon University
GTI hosted a student leadership retreat focused on worldview diversity and interfaith engagement during the MLK Jr Holiday weekend in 2018. Twelve students of diverse faith identities gathered to explore personal identity and potential for interfaith programming on campus.
GTI staff members work closely with the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity in their efforts to foster an inclusive, accessible, and diverse intellectual and cultural campus.
National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI)
GTI staff are part of the NCBI team on campus who volunteer to facilitate NCBI workshops to students, faculty, and staff across campus.
Cultural Competence at NC State
The GTI is also part of a campus committee that’s focused on developing cultural competence across the community. GTI staff members are certified to lead workshops involving the Cultural Intelligence (CQ) and Cultural Values (CV) assessments.
