Intercultural Pedagogy Grants (IPG) workshops

The Dean of International Programs rolled out a new faculty grant for 2016-17 related to Intercultural Pedagogy. In the IPG program, faculty study abroad directors participate in a series of workshops on intercultural mentorship and assessment and receive discretionary funds for professional development. The application process for this grant goes through college International Program Officers, just as SAIL does, and may be combined with SAIL proposals. See the additional information on SAIL grants for more information on the IPG program.

Worldview Workshops

These interactive workshops are designed to create "ah-ha" moments for faculty and staff, as they experience the complexities of culture through a series of facilitated dialogues and exercises.
