In an effort to foster an appreciation of other cultures; this initiative involves a multitude of project and events that include, but are not limited to the celebration of national heritage months.  Supporting Liberty University’s Statement of Mission and Purpose to: 1) Promote an understanding of the Western tradition and the diverse elements of American cultural history, and 2) Contribute to a knowledge and understanding of other cultures and of international events, cultural competency programming is intentional about student development from multicultural awareness → multicultural knowledge → multicultural skills.

  • Multicultural Knowledge is content knowledge about various cultural groups that is typically not taught in preparation programs
