Cultural Competence Programming and Intercultural Learning Program
The Trotter Multicultural Center currently provides cultural competence-related educational programming and the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) as an intercultural competence development tool. 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. Innovative cultural competence-related educational programming that will support a growth mindset and promote an inclusive campus climate offered by TMC is being developed for implementation in Fall 2019.

Inclusive Student Leadership Programming
Inclusive Student Leadership programming is Trotter Multicultural Center's innovative new approach to developing student leaders who understand both multiculturalism and social justice, while at the same time recognize the nuances of individual identities. The primary goal of this program is to inspire student leaders to practice equitable service to campus groups now and take their expertise into their future careers.
The Interfaith Program endeavors to create opportunities and space to accompany students as they make meaning of life’s deepest questions, grapple with who they are called to be, and the impact they want to have in the world as they make transformative connections across identities, experiences, and academic pursuits. The Interfaith Program is currently developing programming and educational opportunities for the campus community focusing on intersectionality, power and privilege, multicultural competence, social justice, and effective ways to support marginalized/underserved students and colleagues.
In partnership with Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs (MESA), University Housing, and the U-M Latina/o Studies Program, the Trotter Distinguished Leadership Series invites you to the “Hailing Cesar” film screening and discussion with Eduardo Chavez, grandson of civil rights activist César Chávez.
