The ability to communicate and work with people who are both different and similar to ourselves is a leadership skill that is becoming increasingly important, not only in the professional world but also in our personal lives. The office of Intercultural Engagement is charged with creating the opportunities where members of the Westminster College community can gain the tools to thrive in a diverse environment and to connect with people who are different from themselves. Our programming is centered on diversity education, the celebration of different cultures and traditions, open discussion of diversity topics and leadership development from a cross-cultural perspective. This office also supports the needs and concerns of historically underrepresented student populations and those of the diversity and multicultural student organizations at Westminster. Together with these student populations and organizations, the office creates awareness and celebrates the similarities and differences among the members of the Westminster community.
