Minor in Cultural Competency

The Minor in Cultural Competency offers students an interdisciplinary understanding of the pluralistic workplaces and communities of today.  By minoring in cultural competency, students gain knowledge, skills, and perspectives essential to full participation in civic life, career development, and the promotion of a just society.  Students will develop a broad awareness of the institutional, interpersonal, and psychological dimensions of diversity and will be equipped to be champions for underserved groups.  The minor empowers students to be leaders in both public and private sectors, and it complements any major or profession involving diverse populations.
