Cultural Competence

Cultural competence

Means appreciating and understanding diverse backgrounds in support of equitable social and institutional practices. 

Culturally competent interventions and services affirm and reflect the inherent value of cultures in order to eliminate barriers that students experience.

Our Goal

Implicit Bias

Refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. ​

Understanding Implicit Bias

• Make connections so students feel included and part of a community that cares about them.​
• Understand that students have different backgrounds and values
