Research supporting the value of intercultural learning and mentoring

The Research Repository within the Intercultural Learning Hub (HubICL) is a collection of open-access publications on a variety of intercultural learning issues. These documents appeal to a wide audience and can include adapted conference papers, research papers, white papers, or pedagogical papers. All submissions to the repository are curated, and we do not guarantee acceptance. We encourage submissions from scholars and students at all stages of their academic journeys.

Among others, a publication by CILMAR's director Dr. Kris Acheson-Clair and colleague Dr. Sundae Schneider-Bean is included in the HubICL's Research Repository.  This journal article addresses the lived experience of intercultural competence development and maintenance through a pendulum model rather than the large upward curve which usually represents intercultural development in the literature. The repository also includes a free worksheet that encourages reflection on the pendulum metaphor.

The HubILC's research repository also includes research by Katherine Yngve on topics pertaining to short-term study abroad. Her study on the intercultural development outcomes of 24 Purdue short-term study abroad programs is a good place to start. Michael Bittinger's exciting paper explores the gains made by students who experienced a short-term study abroad program which had intentional global competency embedded into the curriculum.

For those interested in CILMAR's mini-grant program, examples of several winning submissions are included in the HubICL's research repository. Dr. Bradley Dilger and his team of graduate students have been particularly successful in the mini-grant selection process.  You can see their submission here
