Multicultural competence and internaitonal education in student affairs graduate preparation programs
Leadership and Learning
College of Education
Cultural competency is a critical skill for student affairs professionals which must be woven throughout all professional competencies as identified by the CAS standards (CAS, 2006; Pope, Reynolds, & Mueller, 2004). It is also a skill which must be addressed through a masters level program in the curriculum. This session will share one institutions experience with offering a study abroad/cultural immersion experience for Masters level students over a period of 15 years in three sites: Mexico, Jamaica, and most recently in Atlanta Georgia in a program focused on minority serving institutions. The session will provide participants with an overview of the three projects, a discussion of the impact of these experiences on students, and a dialogue with session participants on creative solutions to addressing this important competency.
