"Cultural Competency Project"
UofL's Institute also directs a transdisciplinary faculty research group in our "Cultural Competency Research Project." The Faculty Research Group has two projects investigating the content and operationalization of "cultural competency" across disciplines, professions, and operations in a university. We are reviewing the role of faculty in advancing social justice and cultural competency in their classrooms, and how University administrators embody cultural competency. This research is part of UofL's Diversity Plan submitted to the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE).
