Perception: The process of making sense of the world around us people, situations, etc. Reality from our point of view. Our perceptions reinforce what we have been taught or expect, and they can shape our interactions with others different or similar to ourselves. PARIS

IN THE THE SPRING Our perceptions reinforce what we have been taught or expect, and they can shape our interactions with others different or similar to ourselves. The U.S. college campus is one of the few places on earth where people from so many diverse backgrounds come

together for a common purpose Imagine a school where all kinds of people feel comfortable showing up, secure in the knowledge that they have a place they dont have to defend every time they turn around, where they are encouraged to do their best, and are valued for it. Privilege, Power, and Difference

Allan G. Johnson, 2006 Workshop Overview Why does diversity matter? Does diversity support student learning and development? Why and how? What is cultural competence? Can cultural competence be developed? Addressing Some Diversity Issues Barriers to Engagement

Why does diversity matter? Its not just the U.S. Schools with an inclusive orientation are the most effective means of combating discriminatory attitudes and creating welcoming communities, building an inclusive society and achieving education for all.

UNESCO Salamanca Statement, 1994 Why does diversity matter? A view from beyond the academy Whether we like it or not, many times we find ourselves segregated from other groups in schools, churches, and our own neighborhoods. A college campus is like opening the door to the entire world without traveling anywhere else.

Why Does Diversity Matter at College Anyway? US News and World Report , August 12, 2009 Pre-college experiences of US students * Public universities ** Private universities >71% grew up in neighborhoods that were mostly or completely white. +/-15% grew up in neighborhoods that were mostly or completely non-white.

61*-65%** attended high schools that were mostly or completely white. 13**-16%* attended high schools that were mostly or completely non-white. 2009 Freshman Survey Whyfor does diversity It matters institutions

Are Diversity and Learning Connected? Essential Liberal Learning Outcomes 1. Intellectual and Practical Skills 2. Personal and Social Responsibility 3. Integrative and Applied Learning American Association of Colleges & Universities http://www.aacu.org/value/

Essential Liberal Learning Outcomes Selected examples 1. Intellectual and Practical Skills: inquiry and analysis; critical thinking; teamwork; problem solving 2. Personal and Social Responsibility: civic knowledge and engagement - local and global; intercultural knowledge and competence; ethical reasoning; foundations

and skills for lifelong learning 3. Integrative and Applied Learning: integrative and applied learning AAC&U Do diversity experiences influence the development of critical thinking? Students' involvement in diversity experiences during college had

statistically significant positive effects on their scores on an objective, standardized measure of critical thinking skills. Pascarella, Palmer, Moye, & Pierson, T. Journal of College Student Development, 2001 Do diverse learning experiences benefit students? Diversity has positive effects on students cognitive development,

satisfaction with the college experience, and leadership abilities. Students who interact with racially and ethnically diverse peers show greater intellectual growth and academic skills. Both in-class and out-of-class interactions and involvement with diverse peers foster critical thinking Benefits and Challenges of Diversity, Eve Fine, 2004 Do diverse learning

Students who interact with racially and ethnically diverse peers show greater intellectual growth and academic skills. Both in-class and out-of-class interactions and involvement with diverse peers foster critical thinking

Benefits and Challenges of Diversity, Eve Fine, 2004 Diversity and Education Southern Oregon University Diversity capitalizes on the unique experiences and common wisdom of all cultures by providing a fertile ground for contrast and comparison. Provides a view of other peoples so distinct from, yet similar to, ourselves that our own

lives and experiences are given new perspective and meaning. Diversity is an enriching and necessary component of the total educational experience. How does increasing cultural competence support student learning, growth and development? Chickerings Seven Vectors: Developmental Tasks for College Students

1. Developing competence 2. Managing emotions 3. Moving through autonomy toward 4. 5. 6. 7. interdependence, Developing mature interpersonal relationships Establishing identity

Developing purpose Developing integrity Chickering & Reisser, 1993 Developing Competence Involves using ones mind to build skill using analytical and comprehensive thought and the

development of forming points of view in dealing with experiences in life. Encompass skills of listening, understanding, and communicating and functioning in different relationships. Chickering & Reisser, 1993 Developing Mature Interpersonal Relationships

Tolerance and appreciation of differences Acceptance is both intercultural and interpersonal. Openness for the understanding of a person for what qualities they possess, instead of stereotyping, is an increase in tolerance. Chickering & Reisser, 1993 Developing Mature Interpersonal Relationships

Acceptance and appreciation of differences Acceptance is both intercultural and interpersonal. Openness for the understanding of a person for what qualities they possess, instead of stereotyping, is an increase in tolerance. Chickering & Reisser, 1993

of view The willingness to preserve self-respect while monitoring behavior. Chickering & Reisser, 1993 Are Diversity and Learning Connected? Questions? Comments? What is Cultural Competence

A set of congruent knowledge, attitudes and behaviors that enable persons from one culture to understand, communicate, operate and provide effective services to people of another culture. Multiple sources Developing Cultural Competence: A Matter of National Security

Concerns that the military as a whole was not prepared to conduct operations in a way that understands other cultures sparked an influx of research into the areas related to cross cultural competence. Instances of stereotyping, racism, and abuses of power showcased the ways in which military members alienated the local populations [in places such as Iraq] Cultural competence

Cultural knowledge Cultural awareness Cultural skill Cultural encounters Cultural desire Campinha-Bacote, 1999 Cross cultural competence Developing an awareness of one's own culture,

existence, sensations, thoughts, and environment; Accepting and respecting cultural differences; Resisting judgmental attitudes such as "different is not as good;" and Being open to cultural encounters;

Being comfortable with cultural encounters. The Purnell Model for Cultural Competence Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Health Summer 2005 Dont ask students to get out of their comfort zone. Challenge and support them to stretch their comfort zone. Cross Cultural Competence includes:

Willingness to Engage Cognitive Flexibility & Openness Emotional Regulation Tolerance of Uncertainty Self- Efficacy Ethnocultural Empathy. Willingness to Engage Represents an individuals willingness

or persistence to stay engaged in making sense of unfamiliar social situations in dissimilar cultures. Cognitive Flexibility & Openness The ability to be flexible in ones approach is expected to allow an individual to solve a range of problems in complex and dynamic situations, which is tantamount to mission success

Gompert, Lachow, & Perkins, 2005 Tolerance of Uncertainty & Ambiguity A general disposition that broadly influences cognition, attitudes, and behavior. Low tolerance for ambiguity is characterized by rigidity, dichotomous thinking, authoritarianism, and ethnocentrism. Frenkel-Brunswik, in Abbe et al., 2007

Self Efficacy A person with high self-efficacy may engage in more cross-cultural encounters and persist in encounters, whereas a person with low self-efficacy would harbor feelings of selfdoubt and may be likely to withdraw prematurely from such encounters. Bandura, 1997; Ang, Van Dyne, Koh, & Ng, 2004; Schwarzer & Jerusalem, 1995 Ethnocultural Empathy

Does not feel irritated when people of different ethnic or cultural backgrounds speak their native language around them Not difficult to put themselves in the shoes of someone from another culture. Can easily understand what it would feel like

to be a person from a different culture. When dealing with people of a different ethnicity or culture, understanding their viewpoint is a top priority. Thinks about the impact of jokes on people who are targeted. Developing competence is a process Cultural competence is not acquired quickly or casually, rather it requires an

intentional examination of ones thoughts and behaviors. The first step toward becoming culturally competent is realizing that you probably arent. Cultural Competence in the Biology Classroom Kimberly Tanner & Deborah Allen, 2007 Developing competence is a process Denial: individuals refuse all interaction with other

cultures and show no interest in discovering cultural differences. They may also act aggressively during cross cultural situations. Defense: individuals consider all other cultures to be inferior to their own culture and will constantly criticize behavior or thoughts by someone from another culture. Minimization: individuals start believing that all

cultures share common values. They will also minimize any cultural differences by correcting people to match their expectations. Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity Dr. Milton Bennett Developing competence is a process Acceptance: Individuals may still judge other cultures negatively but they will tend to recognize

that cultures are different and they may become curious about cultural differences Adaptation: Individuals gain the ability to adapt their behavior by intentionally changing their own behavior or communication style. Integration: this stage, individuals instinctively change their behavior and communication style

when interacting with other cultures. This stage tends to only be achieved by long term expatriates living and working abroad or Global Nomads. Dr. Milton Bennett Cross Cultural Competence includes: Having the capacity to: value diversity conduct self-assessment manage the dynamics of difference acquire and institutionalize

cultural knowledge adapt to the diversity and cultural contexts of individuals and communities served. From Knowing to Doing Requires more than acquiring knowledge. It is leveraging knowledge, attitudes, and skills to engage and intervene appropriatelyacross cultures.

Latino 101, Dr. Maria Hernandez, 2007 Cultural Competence Questions? Comments? Attention to diversity perceived as divisive and inhibiting community. A strategy to counter the divisive perceptions of diversity is to broaden our definition of diversity, in ways that

highlight the intersectionality of race/ethnic, gender, class, religion, sexual orientation, within a framework of marginalization and justice. Marilyn Fernandez, Santa Clara University Making Diversity More Inclusive Culture is often viewed in the U.S. as being primarily related to race, ethnicity, and gender

Effective diversity/inclusivity education must also address other kinds of diversity which lead to marginalization and exclusion. If the World Were a Village of 100 People 49 would be male, 51 would be female 82 people of color; 18 white 33 Christians 22 Muslims, 15 Hindus 14 would speak Chinese, Mandarin

8 English 8 Hindi 7 Spanish 89 would be heterosexual; 11 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender(LGBT) 67 would be unable to read 5 would control 32% of the entire worlds wealth; all 5 would be US citizens 1 would have a college education

What do we believe about poverty? Poverty in the US is decreasing The poverty rate had risen significantly in seven of the prior 10 years from a recent low of 11.3 percent in 2000. US Census Bureau September 2012 What do we believe about poverty?

The poor are lazy and unwilling to work 2/3 of people living in poverty work an average of 1.7 jobs 1 in 4 earns poverty level wages (less than $8.84 an hour) 27% of working families have INCOMES below 200% of the poverty level Facts about US poverty The federal poverty threshold in 2012 for a

family of four with two children 17 or younger is $23.050. A hypothetical US single parent needs to make at least $20.14 per hour just to cover his or her familys basic necessities. Thats in the cheapest state South Dakota. The nationwide average is $24.09 per hour, or >$50,000 per year MIT Living Wage Calculator

What do we believe about poverty? Poverty is an inner city problem. Since 2000, suburban poverty rates have increased by 53% compared to 26% in cities. Brookings Institution, October 2011 Facts about US poverty The rate of child poverty is higher in the United States than in most other economically advanced countries.

16.1 million US children (persons under 18) living in poverty in 2011 Only two of the 33 countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development devote a smaller share of their economic output to programs that help poor families make ends meet than the United States Mexico and South Korea.

Encourage Critical Thinking Conservative think tanks have spawned a cottage industry churning out dubious studies purporting to show that poor families are living high on the hog on public benefits, a claim that anybody who has actually experienced poverty in America would find laughable.

strides in building campus and classroom spaces that are more fully welcoming of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) people, as well as of academic explorations related to gender and sexuality. And yet Students, staff, professors, or administrators who identify as LGBT

report significant harassment at their colleges and discomfort with the overall campus climate. Chronicle of Higher Education, 9/14/2010 LGBT are among the most despised groups in the United States today. Blumenfeld, 2003 Gays As the Domestic al-Qaeda?!?

heterosexuals about heterosexism, especially if they have worked hard to improve their class position.

ism.pdf White students often struggle with strong feelings of guilt when they become aware of the pervasive racism. Even when they feel their own behavior has been nondiscriminatory. These feelings are uncomfortable and can lead white students to resist learning about race and

racism. And who can blame them? White students often struggle with strong feelings of guilt when they become aware of the pervasive racism. Even when they feel their own behavior has been nondiscriminatory. These feelings are uncomfortable and can lead white students to resist learning about race and

racism. And who can blame them? If learning about racism means seeing oneself as one of the bad guys. Beverly Tatum, 1994 Its not personal As a white, male, nondisabled, middle class heterosexual, I do know that in some ways these words are about me But in equally important ways the words

are not about me because they name something larger than me, something I didnt create or invent but that was passed on to me as a legacy of being born into this society. Johnson 2006 Understanding White Identity Development A person must become aware

of her/his Whiteness, learn to accept Whiteness as an important part of her/himself, and to internalize a realistically positive view of what it means to be white. Janet Helms, 1992 White Identity Development: A stage model

Contact stage Disintegration stage Reintegration stage Pseudo-independent stage Immersion/Emersion

Autonomy Helms, 1992 White Identity Development: A stage model Contact stage A primitive status characterized by denial of obliviousness to White privilege. Thus when this status is dominant in a White person, she or he will react to racial stimuli (e.g.,

discussion about racism) with avoidance No acknowledgement of the reality of racism in society, they take no action to understand their own privilege or work toward creating a more just society. White Identity Development: A stage model Disintegration stage Characterized by disorientation, guilt, and anxiety as the realities of

racism seem to break through the obliviousness of the contact stage. The individual is caught between wanting to be accepted by the normative (White) group and at the same time experiencing a moral dilemma over treating/considering people of color as inferior to Whites. White Identity Development:

A stage model Disintegration stage One solution to mitigating the anxiety of this stage is to re-embrace the ideology of the normative White group and its racist social pressure. If a person in disintegration adopts this solution to dealing with her or his ambivalence and anxiety, the reintegration stage has been entered.

White Identity Development: A stage model Reintegration stage Represents the purest racist status in this model. Negative conditions associated with minority individuals are thought to reflect their own failings or lack of effort.

The residual feelings of anxiety and guilt from the previous status are now transformed into anger and fear of minority group individuals White Identity Development: A stage model Pseudo-independent stage Acknowledgement of White responsibilities for past and ongoing

racism. These individuals are not comfortable with a racist stance and begin the search for a new White identity. Attention is directed more toward dissatisfaction with other Whites, not a deep level of personal self-analysis with regard to their own socialized racism. White Identity Development: A stage model

Immersion/Emersion Individuals immerse themselves in the search for accurate information about race and a deeper understanding of their own racial socializations. Individuals might be involved in social activism to fight racism. White Identity Development: A stage model

Emersion involves a withdrawal from the previous frantic search for a new identity that is characteristic of immersion and the embracing of a community of White people where one can be rejuvenated and empowered in continuing ones identity development. White Identity Development:

A stage model Autonomy The autonomous person is cognitively complex and flexible and may avoid life options that involve participation in racial oppression. Have the capacity to relinquish White privilege. Identity Development

Autonomy The autonomous person is humanistic and involved in activism regarding many forms of oppression (e.g., fighting sexism, ageism, homophobia). A broader understanding of white
