Creating a Diverse & Rich Community: Our Approach

We believe that our outcomes and interactions are affected by personal, cultural and societal factors. Just as it is incredibly important to understand our personalities and how this plays into our interactions with, and perceptions of others; we should also understand our cultural norms and the role our various societal affiliations impacts perception, interpretations, values and actions.

It is our goal to help the Champlain Community develop this multidimensional framework (cognitive complexity is our pet term for this!) because we believe this is required to create an inclusive campus and help us thrive in a global, multicultural and interdependent world.
