Trotter Multicultural Center

The Trotter Multicultural Center Intercultural Learning Program encourages global and inclusive mindsets or growth mindsets around difference. This program continues use of the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) along side other intercultural learning tools (e.g., CQ-Cultural Intelligence and Cultural Values ICS-Intercultural Conflict Styles, etc.) and supplemental programming. In 2016, the Division of Student Life launched an effort to create a more equitable and inclusive campus as part of its five-year Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) strategic plan. The Intercultural Development Inventory experience is a key component to Student Life’s DEI strategic plan is an opportunity for individuals and groups to learn a sense of current levels of intercultural competence, develop a plan to understand difference with greater complexity, and more effectively navigate across difference.
