Diversity Spotlight Recipient - March 2016

Augsburg College is the recipient of the March Division III Diversity Spotlight Initiative.  In response to a shift in demographics, the college has created and launched a diversity certificate program to provide students, faculty and staff the opportunity to complete targeted and specific diversity, equity and inclusion training.  One of the core requirements of the program is an Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), a cross-culturally validated assessment of an individual's intercultural competence.  Click here to read the full story.

To submit for consideration for the Diversity Spotlight Initiative, please email Jessica Duff or Jaime Dicks, with a brief statement (no more than 500 words) as to why your institution or conference office deserves to be the spotlight recipient.
