Communication

Intercultural Sensitivity: Looking Through Other Eyes

The International Programs Center [IPC] is offering this workshop to help UNCG faculty and staff increase awareness of their own cultural background and heighten their intercultural sensitivity (a lifelong learning experience). This three-hour workshop centers on Milton Bennett's Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS), a model of the development of one's worldview structure. According to Bennett, "The underlying assumption of the model is that as one's experience of cultural difference becomes more sophisticated, one's competence in intercultural relations potentially increases." Intended audience: All employees interested in incorporating intercultural competency into curriculum (as part of our university-wide internationalization plan) and/or into their daily professional/personal lives. Note: All enrollees are required to take the DMIS instrument which is $12.00.
