PD 724 – Developing Cultural Competence Co-curricular Student Certificate offered by NC State Global Training Initiative

February 1 | 9:00 am - April 14 | 10:30 am

The College of Education is sponsoring the $100 Program Fee for students who wish to participate in the virtual Developing Cultural Competence (DCC) program hosted by the NC State Global Training Initiative.

This co-curricular certificate program aims to help you identify your own cultural preferences and equip you with the tools to understand the preferences of others. Cultural awareness can give you the skills you need in working with diverse populations of students and colleagues in educational settings. Participating in this program will help you develop skills and strategies for working effectively across cultural differences. This program is also an opportunity to explore the world from home by connecting with peers and colleagues around the world.

The average time requirement of the program is 12 hours in total over the 4 week period. You are expected to join four 90-minute live facilitated sessions via Zoom (6 hours) and complete weekly self-paced lessons and assignments (6+ hours).

The priority application deadline for Spring 2022 DCC sessions is Friday, January 14, 2022, and it is open to College of Education undergraduate and graduate students. Undergraduate students and MAT students are eligible to receive PGU credit by registering in SAGE.
