Area of Focus
Housed in the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) at IUPUI, the Office of Intercultural Literacy, Capacity and Engagement (ILCE) will coordinate personalized workshops, discussions and programming designed to provide the knowledge, skills and tools for individuals to work across differences. ILCE will facilitate collaboration with the professionals in all DEI units including Adaptive Educational Services, LGBTQ+ Center and Multicultural Center, all of which boast long-standing training programs.
Intergroup Dialogue, a facilitated “face-to-face conversation between members of two or more social identity groups that strives to create new levels of understanding, relating and action” will join the Office of Intercultural Literacy, Capacity and Engagement in August 2016, providing another powerful tool for IUPUI community members in search of a more in-depth connection and understanding of one another.
ILCE will host monthly Critical Conversations – BYOL where participants engage a timely issue over the lunch hour. These Critical Conversations will coordinate with the Chancellor’s Diversity Lecture Series, offering an informal collegial space to dialogue about issues of social justice, equity, and inclusion. CC-BYOLs are open to IUPUI faculty, staff, students and the Indianapolis community. Learn More
