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.
The Cultural Diversity Awareness Course aims to increase students' awareness of diversity and intercultural competence as they communicate, learn and work in the local diverse community, and the global environment.
