Cross Cultural Competency

About the Course

Cross-Cultural Competency is a free, open online course developed by the UWF Innovation Institute in partnership with Dr. Kim Le Duff, UWF’s Chief Diversity Officer and VP of Academic Engagement. The course is structured around the concepts of Awareness, Acceptance and Respect and includes five modules

  • Overview
  • Global Village
  • disABILITY
  • Gender & Sexuality
  • Religious Diversity

This course takes a conversational approach to sometimes sensitive subjects and aims to help participants understand and respect one another as well as be able to function in diverse environments encountered in the workplace, in the classroom, or in social settings.

Cross-Cultural Competency is video based and enrollment is easy. Total time commitment is roughly 12-15 hours (and you can work at your own pace; there is no start or end date). Currently this course is not for credit but it may be offered for credit in the future.
