Cultural and Community Centers (CCC) offer workshops that create supportive spaces for students to engage in meaningful conversations around issues of diversity and inclusion. These workshops are designed for various audiences and can be tailored to fit any group whether it be as an in-classroom presentation or co-curricular experience (i.e., student organization meeting, student leader training, leadership/diversity conference, etc.).
Please see descriptions below of current CCC workshops.
In order to assist you in selecting an appropriate workshop, our workshops are categorized into one of three clusters: affective, cognitive, and behavioral. For more information about each category, as well as a list of associated workshops, please see the information in the section below.
Workshops within this category introduce students to the existence of various identities and different cultures, as well as some of the factors that impact the perceptions of those cultures, and the concept of intercultural competence. Workshops within this category aim to introduce students to the requisite attitudes when learning about different cultures. Acquiring the requisite attitudes implies a willingness to risk and to move beyond one’s comfort zone.
Workshops within this category enhance students’ knowledge of various cultures and sub-cultures. Additionally, these workshops aim to develop skills that address the acquisition and processing of knowledge, and ones that students can utilize in their intercultural competence development.
Workshops within this category explore intersections of identity and the contextual presentation of culture in everyday situations. These workshops aim to equip students with the ability to develop an ethnorelative perspective and demonstrate culturally effective and appropriate behaviors and communication styles.
- We ask that all workshops be requested at least two (2) weeks in advance of the desired presentation date.
- You will be contacted by a member of our staff within three (3) business days of your submission to confirm availability of facilitators and for any follow-up inquiries.
- The minimum number of participants can vary between workshops, but approximately 6-10 is a good starting point (see individual workshops for details). If your group is larger than the indicated maximum number of participants for the workshop, we are happy to split your group up and conduct multiple sessions of the requested workshop(s) to accommodate larger groups. For special requests where splitting a group is not ideal, please inform the CCC staff member who reaches out to schedule your workshop.
- The requesting entity is asked to provide both the space and technology for presentations. If the workshop is to take place virtually, the requesting entity is asked to set up the virtual meeting and invite all pertinent attendees. CCC will always send the requestor a calendar invite for a virtual MS Teams meeting, which the requesting entity is welcome to use.
- Each session can be tailored to fit varying time periods; minimum amount of time needed for facilitation is 50 minutes.
- If you are unsure of which workshop you need, or would like a workshop to cover specific topics not listed above, please fill out the request form and indicate your desired goals and learning outcomes in the form.
- The general purpose of these workshops is to create interactive spaces to engage in dialogue about social identity and cultural competence. If your organization is seeking mediation, the Office of Student Advocacy (advocacy.kennesaw.edu) can serve as a resource.
- The intended audience for CCC workshops are KSU students. If you are seeking a workshop for KSU staff and/or faculty or for an external campus partner, please email us at email@example.com.
