Experiences in Postsecondary Education That May Lead to Cultural Intelligence: Exploring and Proposing Practices
Lopes-Murphy, Solange A.
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v26 n2 p287-296 2014
Cultural intelligence is among the top essential learning outcomes for college graduates. Despite the emphasis on internationalizing higher education and the increased culturally focused initiatives across campuses, fewer than seven percent of college-level students meet even basic standards for cultural intelligence by the time they graduate with a bachelor's degree. Research on the postsecondary experiences that lead to cultural intelligence is still rather limited. This paper, through an extensive review of the literature, presents the context of global education in higher education, discusses cultural intelligence and its dimensions, and presents recommendations on ways to infuse culturally intelligent practices inside and outside of postsecondary classrooms.
