Academic Libraries: How Cultural Intelligence Makes a Difference?
Faculty Presentation

Faculty Conference Presentation

Dr. Villagran is the College & Research Luncheon keynote speaker at the 2019 Pennsylvania Library Association annual conference. Her talk will address her research with cultural intelligence and academic libraries.

It is not enough to simply be ‘aware’ anymore. We must go beyond our own self-awareness and awareness of others to understand the impacts of how we work and interact effectively in culturally diverse situations, whether domestic or global. As our workforces become more diverse and our students and faculty we serve are more diverse, we face an even greater challenge and problem: that is how to successfully manage increasingly diverse interactions. To address this concern, organizations are applying the framework of cultural intelligence. Dr. Villagran is looking forward to sharing this framework with you and its application within the academic sector.
