Title: Inclusive Excellence, Intercultural intelligence, and the Status of Diversity Education.
We live in a divided and divisive world in which we deepen our disagreements rather than finding effective ways to collaborate and allow everyone to flourish. Higher education is not immune to this situation. Today more than ever, Institutions of Higher education have the responsibility to create environments in which academic excellence is inclusive, in which we all develop intercultural intelligence and a strong sense of democratic values and civic engagement. Dr. Hernandez Jarvis will discuss the status of multiculturalism and diversity education in the USA and present models to approach these tensions which can lead to growth, collaboration and well-being for all in the community.
