Intercultural Directions Council

Intercultural competence is the ability to engage, learn from and work with people whose cultural identity is different from one’s own.

The Role of the Intercultural Directions Council

To empower, facilitate, assess and provide data, resources and feedback to the CSB/SJU communities so as to enhance intercultural competence. This process will embrace an integral and collaborative approach that over time engages all aspects of both institutions. The Strategic Directions Council expects the IDC to provide quality and timely information in order to inform the SDC in institutional planning.
