Cultural Council Program

The CCP at KSU consists of high achieving KSU students who are recruited to join the program and expand their knowledge of intercultural competence. 
 
As student leaders, the CCP members train hard and volunteer their time and acquired knowledge and skills to help the Cultural and Community Centers (CCC) in tabling and promotion of the department at various university-wide events.

Additionally, CCP members are trained to facilitate peer-to-peer workshops and activities. Members are paired with a Center coordinator based on interest and desire to learn and they assist the Center Coordinators in the planning, coordination, and execution of the various Heritage & History Months and Weeks that the CCC celebrates.

Cultural and Community Centers' Workshops

About Us

The Cultural and Community Centers (CCC) offer workshops that create supportive spaces for students to engage in meaningful conversations and are designed for various audiences, whether it be as an in-classroom presentation or co-curricular experience (i.e., student organization meeting, student leader training, leadership/diversity conference, etc.).

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.

  • Important Information:

    • 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 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 ccc@kennesaw.edu.
