Intercultural Effectiveness Certificate Program

Laurier International, in partnership with the Centre for Intercultural Learning is offering a four module Intercultural Effectiveness Certificate Program, geared towards developing knowledge of and value for the competencies necessary to be an interculturally effective person, an awareness of one's own level of competence, and finally, an understanding of how one can strengthen their own intercultural abilities, and knowledge.

Registration will begin in FALL 2015

    •Define and describe how culture affects our interactions with others
    •Identify the 9 competencies of the Interculturally Effective Person
    •Apply the concept of culture to current or previous personal and professional experiences
    •Identify the 4 stages of cultural adjustment and strategies to assist with cultural adaptation
    •Empathize and value approaches and ways of thinking different from one's own
    •Identify and understand the cultural patterns of communication
