FYS 062 Discussions on Diversity: Strategies for Creating Change

The class will explore the issues pertaining to diversity (e.g. race, class, and gender) with the overall purpose of increasing student's personal multicultural competence and ability to create systemic change. Multicultural competence will be defined as the degree to which one's knowledge, awareness, and skills reflect a multicultural identity. A particular highlight of the class will be to understand "isms," identity development, and multicultural competence from a neurobiomechanics perspective.
