The Cultural Competence Academy (CCA) Brown Bag Series is designed to provide opportunities for members of the UNLV collegiate community to develop the knowledge, skills and awareness related to cultural issues and working with diverse populations. As a continuation of the CCA Pilot, the Brown Bags will assist in establishing a strong and viable cultural competence program that relies upon the expertise of members of the UNLV faculty and staff in its overall design and implementation. The target audience for the CCA Pilot includes, but is not limited to, individuals in decision making positions, current and future search committee members, and those wishing to engage in dialogue that serves as a catalyst for continued and future growth in the area of cultural competence.
Presenter: Heidi Tinnerello, James Jones & Yolanda Johnson; UNLV Office of International Students and Scholars
Description: Observations of an International Student Advisor should help students, faculty, and staff understand what kind of culturally diverse student population we have at UNLV. This presentation is intended to promote awareness and understanding of different cultures in an effort to bridge any gaps between our international students, domestic students, faculty, and staff. This proposal intends to help students, faculty, and staff relate to each others' differences in and out of the classroom.
Target Audience: Students, Faculty, and Staff
