Learning & Development

Build a strong foundation from which to grow.

Our philosophy for the Learning & Development (L&D) team is to be intentional as we build developmental programs starting with the basic need for a strong foundation from which to grow. Through our work, we take a holistic approach to engage all employees, encourage reflection, increase self-awareness, inspire positive interactions and ultimately lead to employees’ personal and professional growth.

Cultural Competence at MSU Denver and Beyond

Diversity is one of MSU Denver's core values and cultural competence is an essential skill in embedding diversity and inclusion into everything we do at the University. But we are not alone in our pursuit of inclusive excellence and cultural competence; universities, city organizations, and health care institutions across the country are also seeking to improve their ability to function and gain advantage in an increasingly global and diverse world.

The Intercultural Development Continuum (IDC™)

The Intercultural Development Continuum (IDC TM) describes a set of knowledge/attitude/skill sets or orientations toward cultural difference and commonality that are arrayed along a continuum from the more monocultural mindsets of Denial and Polarization through the transitional orientation of Minimization to the intercultural or global mindsets of Acceptance and Adaptation. The capability of deeply shifting cultural perspective and bridging behavior across cultural differences is most fully achieved when one maintains an Adaptation perspective. This continuum is adapted from the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity originally proposed by Milton Bennett.
