In an increasingly global world, the term “intercultural competence” is commonly used, but what does it really mean? This workshop explores what intercultural competence is, how it benefits individuals and communities, and how we can grow our competencies. Participants will leave with a deepened awareness of how their own communication preferences can impact cross-cultural interactions.

Sign up for Action Zone: Bystander Intervention Leadership Training today!
NYU Steinhardt’s Office of Counseling & Student Services is working in partnership with NYU’s Health Promotion Office to offer Action Zone! on Friday, April 17, 2015 from 11am to 1pm in Pless Hall, 1st Floor Lounge. Lunch will be served.
Action Zone! NYU (formerly known as Step Up! NYU) is a bystander intervention training for risk reduction. Topic areas include, but are not limited to:
- eating disorders
- unhealthy relationships
- substance use
- mental health
- bias language
Studies show that most people want to help, but very few actually do. We explore this phenomenon as well as when to intervene and when not to; safe, early, and effective intervention; and pro-social behavior theory with interactivity and facilitated practice using Augusto Boal’s Forum Theatre model. By participating in the Action Zone! you can be a part of reducing risk and shifting cultural norms at NYU!
This opportunity is open to NYU Steinhardt students, faculty, and staff. Lunch will be provided.
At our next Let’s Talk International, we’ll explore the skills we develop when working with people from different cultures or living in other countries. What are these valuable skills? How do we articulate them to others? How do they serve us personally and professionally?
Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Time: 12pm – 1:30pm
Details: Click to register. Lunch is provided. Space is limited.
Let’s Talk International is a semi-structured discussion group and safe space for study abroad returnees, international students, third culture kids, and anybody interested in international/intercultural experiences to explore topics such as identity development, cultural adjustment, cross-cultural relationships, and general navigation of life across cultures.

Summer 2015 positions will be full-time, with assignments (depending on program) running between 6 and 9 weeks. We anticipate positions in programs such as Science of Smart Cities, Computer Science for Cyber Security, and Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering. Successful applicants will receive training in curricula as well as instructional practices.
The Center’s programs are hands-on, and seek to engage young people in STEM disciplines by emphasizing the ways in which the fundamentals of science, technology and engineering are applied to solve real-world problems and to discover new knowledge through research. In our programs, we primarily use materials and gear you would find in a lab environment such as microcontrollers, circuit components, and motors; demonstrations and experiments in the curricula are conducted with tools and techniques used by all manner of scientists and engineers.
We are seeking students with diverse STEM and education backgrounds, including engineering disciplines, computer science, biology, chemistry and the like. The Center offers a mission-oriented, supportive, rewarding and well-compensated work environment.
