This workshop will investigate approaches to institutional interculturalization that services and supports successful internationalization in Higher Education. Participants will define what "intercultural" means to their institution’s internationalization vision, how intercultural strategies can be implemented and how intercultural work can be sustained within the institution. The facilitators will address gaps in institutional intercultural knowledge and present an approach for creating a shift toward intercultural sensitivity within the institution at the staff, faculty and management level.

The content of this session is applicable to PSE.
