Type: Curriculum

This on-line curriculum covers a broad range of topics related to cultural competence within the context of community development, organization, and engagement. It also includes checklists, examples and Power Point slides to be used in live training. There is excellent content on a range of topics including, but not limited to:

  • Understanding Culture and Diversity in Building Communities
  • Building Relationships with People from Different Cultures
  • Healing from the Effects of Internalized Oppression
  • Strategies and Activities for Reducing Racial Prejudice and Racism
  • Learning to be an Ally for People from Diverse Groups and Backgrounds
  • Building Culturally Competent Organizations
  • Transforming Conflicts in Diverse Communities

There is not content specifically related to individuals with IDD, and thus adaptations or additions would have to be considered within that context for use in UCEDD curricula and training activities.
