The Office of Diversity and Equity provides training on issues of diversity, power, privilege, and inequity. While there will be training opportunities provided for the whole campus, we can also provide specialized, targeted diversity training for departments or groups based on the needs of that group. We will work together to craft an individualized training plan that identifies particular subject areas and activities that will move. If you are interested in this type of training opportunity, please contact our office (hyperlink to Meet Our Staff section).
The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) is a statistically reliable, cross-culturally
valid measure of intercultural competence adapted from the Developmental Model of
Intercultural Sensitivity. The instrument is easy to complete and it can generate
an in-depth graphic profile of an individual's or groups' predominant level of intercultural
competence along with a detailed textual interpretation of that level of intercultural
development and associated transitional issues.
Clark College has a team of Qualified Administrators of the IDI who can guide individuals or teams through the process of assessment of intercultural competence and next steps toward increasing cultural competence. Please be in touch with our office if you are interested in the IDI (hyperlink to Meet our Staff section).
