Organizational self-assessment is a necessary, effective, and systematic way to plan for and incorporate cultural competence. An assessment should address attitudes, behaviors, policies, structures, and practices of an organization or program, including those of its faculty, staff, students, board members, and volunteers. This workshop will explore the benefits of and a process for conducting organizational self-assessment within institutions of higher education.
