2014 Fall Series

Cultural Orientation, Reflection and Engagement aims to enable anyone who is crossing international, socioeconomic, or cultural borders to be able to:

  • Observe, listen, communicate, and make sense of other people’s words and behaviors when we do not speak or share a common language.
  • Understand how social roles, categories and contexts shape communication, our perceptions of others, and our identity.
  • Combine and apply observed experience and understood categories to create a narrative that translates across cultures.
