Join Dean Renée Cheng and guest instructors as we explore the concepts of culture, collaboration, and integration supported by intercultural skills. Through skills and concepts introduced in this class, students become more effective in working within their peer groups and in their interface with community, firm, or other stakeholders. This class supports work in two innovative initiatives — the Nehemiah Studio and Applied Research Consortium (ARC) — at the College of Built Environments that support college-wide goals of advancing equitable, research-based, integrated future practice. All graduate students are welcome.

Topics Include:

> The role of culture in the built environment

> Equitable practice

> Collaboration

> Integration

> Development of intercultural skills

> Navigating differences and conflict

> Alternative value propositions

> Equitable and research-based future practice
