Developing Cultural Competence Student Certificate Program

DCC Certificate Components

The DCC co-curricular certificate program includes three workshops designed to provide a theoretical framework for understanding culture, cultural dimensions, and cultural competency. The program also introduces cultural skills that are immediately applicable to experiences on and off campus. In order to earn the certificate, students should complete all five components: three 2-hour workshops led by GTI staff, a cultural reflection and a cultural assessment.
