Cultivating Global Competencies in a Diverse World

A series of faculty workshops, curriculum development activities, and a regional symposium on world cultures and global interdependence at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.

The BMCC NEH initiative, Cultivating Intercultural Competencies in the Globalized Classroom, is an interdisciplinary three-year project designed to equip students with greater intercultural competencies to participate in a globalized world. More than simply embracing the notion of cultural diversity by encouraging the toleration of group differences, BMCC seeks to develop a broader agenda based on a common theme of enhancing intercultural competencies across course offerings in the Humanities so that BMCC students can better understand the interconnected world around them and be prepared to become effective agents of social justice and social change.
