Intercultural Competence & Diversity

Empowering students and staff in the development of their intercultural competence and enhancing their understanding for gender and sexual diversity.



Our community is composed of people from diverse cultural backgrounds, including different national or ethnic affiliations, race, language, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical and cognitive abilities, spiritual beliefs, and marital/parental status. Our intent with this guide is to offer a starting point in understanding our cultural identities and building the skills to bridge cross-cultural differences. 

This guide also includes specialty pages with a focus on Anti-Black Racism, Intercultural Communication among others. 

This guide would not be made possible without the contributions and insights of Nora Sobel, Diversity Initiatives Coordinator, Academic Success Centre, and Library Technician Meagan Acquisto for her work on the Anti-Black Racism Tab.
