The Intercultural diversity reference group for researchers and academia

The mission of the Intercultural Diversity reference group is to advance a commitment to cultivating and respecting intercultural diversity by serving as a resource and liaison for students, staff, and faculty on reciprocal processes of education, outreach advocacy and research.

This reference group is in close collaboration with global engagement and international offices of the respective universities.  Through our work, we strive to provide its students, faculty, and staff with opportunities to connect and collaborate across borders, sectors, and cultures. This work includes the development of global portals and exploring partnerships with other like-minded institutions around the world, continuing to provide our students with opportunities to study abroad through our Global Pathways and Exchange programs, and working with researchers to ensure that diversity is viewed from both a local and global perspectives and explored within the framework of applied research.
