Center for Diversity and Inclusion

Cultural Competency Training

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion’s Cultural Competency Training model was launched in 2011. The program is a way to increase awareness, knowledge, and skills of Michigan Tech students, staff, and faculty about the following issues:

  • self-awareness,
  • communication,
  • cultural literacy,
  • diversity,
  • discrimination, and
  • allyship development.

All OTLs and student employees in Housing and Residential Life participate in the trainings. Faculty, staff, and students who are interested in the training may contact Kellie Raffaelli for more information. External agencies (universities and companies) can purchase a packaged version of the Cultural Competency Training Model.
