Developing the Intercultural Competence of Students

Different Lenses

Different Lenses is an intercultural and diversity training certificate workshop series open to all Purdue students who want to develop personal intercultural competency demonstrated through language skills and behaviors in order to promote inclusivity in friendship groups, student organizations, leadership positions, and with peers and professors in and outside of the classroom.
