Event Details:

The rapid internationalization of our institutions of higher education has created a climate in which all education professionals are required to work with students and colleagues who do not share our worldview or cultural norms. Intercultural competence has become an expected skill set for all of us in higher education today, yet few of us of have had more than rudimentary exposure to the field of intercultural communication. In this Web Event, sponsored by NACADA's Global Engagement Commission, our panelists will discuss essential concepts of intercultural communication and their application to academic advising. They will consider the need for paying attention to cultural differences, challenges and opportunities of culturally diverse environments, understanding cultural differences and their impact on academic advising, and more.
