Have you ever felt like something was “lost in translation” or that you could not communicate effectively with someone different from yourself? In this series, we will unpack the why and how of those experiences and learn how to move past awkward moments to real communication. This skill (or VALUE as the AAC&U terms it) is called Intercultural Knowledge and Competence and it is “the ability to interact effectively with others from various cultures”.

Via activities, workshops, reflections and readings, you will explore cultural patterns and ways of communicating. This three-week series requires that you begin to see beyond yourself and integrate more fully into the world community. By learning to adapt your own communication to be more empathetic and flexible, your intercultural competence and communication skills will increase.
