Cultural competencies can help everyone teach and learn to their best ability. Having multiculturally informed individual practices, group expectations, and institutional policies in place that promote inclusion equity and excellence for all should lead to individual and institutional growth and vitality.
The challenge many institutions face is that every person on every campus comes with life experiences that influence how we relate to others. Sometimes unresolved experiences around race, class, gender, sexual orientation, etc., get activated or triggered by micro-aggressions, whether conscious or unconsciously. This activation process sets off a chemical reaction that can limit or even shut down our ability to think and act in reasonable, creative and/or productive ways.
Every campus community has an opportunity to incorporate intentional and integrated culturally responsive practices and policies that reduce harm and promote faculty, staff, and student excellence.
Have you heard the expression ‘I think someone discovered water, and I don’t think it was a fish’? With the support of excellent coaches, individual, group, and institutional transformation is most likely to happen when desire meets opportunity. Can you benefit from customized faculty and staff development? I excel at helping individuals and groups learn, co-create, work productively, and become their best selves in the process.
Would you like to learn more about how to bring faculty and staff behaviors to a higher level of cultural competency that directly impacts students’ achievement?
