Madyun, Na'im; Williams, Sheneka M.; McGee, Ebony O.; Milner, H. Richard, IV
Educational Foundations, v27 n3-4 p65-84 Sum-Fall 2013
In this article, the authors argue that the presence, influence, and contributions of faculty of Color can help higher education students achieve intercultural competence. The authors define intercultural competence as "people's ability to communicate and function effectively across varying cultures." The question guiding this article is: In what ways do the contributions of faculty of Color help build students' intercultural competence? Through personal stories and experiences, four African-American faculty members at predominantly White higher education institutions share their beliefs on how their work has helped build and shape students'--all-students'--intercultural competence in what they call "White spaces."
