From the Desk of the Dean…

The College of Intercultural Studies (CICS) equips and connects students for effective life, work, and ministry in a culturally diverse world. We prepare students for tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities in marketplace, ministry, and mission endeavors.Picture of Dr. Smither

Our undergraduate programs build a foundation for understanding cultures and worldviews. Students learn to identify distinct cultures and their inherent barriers and bridges for cross-cultural relationships. In the process, they become acutely aware of their own culture. CICS students participate in field-based internships. 

International businesses and non-profit organizations are looking for culturally intelligent graduates who understand and navigate the critical paths of our multi-cultural world while they maintain and model a high caliber of character and integrity. The College of Intercultural Studies prepares such students for global engagement tomorrow.

Looking forward,

Ed Smither, Ph.D.
Dean of the College of Intercultural Studies
