HH-5500Multicultural Education Definition
Programs that foster understanding, acceptance, empathy, and constructive and harmonious relations among people of diverse cultures. Multicultural education encourages learners of all ages to view different cultures as a source of learning and enrichment, promoting cultural understanding and cultural accommodations. The outcome of multicultural education should be an increased knowledge about other cultures, pride in a student's own heritage, an appreciation of other ways of life, and improved cross-cultural social and communication skills.
PH-6200.1860Diversity Awareness Training Definition
Programs that offer workshops, discussion groups and other types of training which focus on the knowledge and interpersonal skills that participants may need in order to work and live comfortably and effectively with people, for example, who have different cultural or religious backgrounds or sexual orientations, or who live with disabilities or represent a different age group. The training typically helps participants clarify their own values and attitudes and understand how these condition their expectations of and reactions to others. It may also include material that addresses the similarities and differences between two (or more) specific cultures and helps participants understand the perspectives, customs, history, use of language and other aspects of the other culture in order to help prevent cultural differences from becoming barriers to communication, interaction and appreciation.
YZ-1650Cultural/Racial Issues Definition
Programs that provide information and/or services that deal with the topic of culture/multiculturalism, i.e., that relate to the distinctive racial, national, tribal, religious, linguistic and/or cultural origins or backgrounds which groups of people have in common and that sometimes separate one group from another.
