At Damietta, we offer a variety of programs for the Siena community to promote inclusiveness, diversity and social justice.
Cross-Cultural Solidarity Experience
The cross-cultural solidarity experience program provides cross-cultural learning opportunities for students both inside and outside the classrooms. The program enhances students' knowledge about diversity and offers opportunities for students to learn about another cultures through interactive activities.
Examples of courses:
History 101 by Dr. Tim Cooper: Students in this course have opportunities to work with refugees in the Albany area.
First Year Seminar by Dr. Peter Ellard: Students in this course have opportunities to interact with Buddhist monks and develop a deeper understanding about Buddhism.
Cross-Cultural Training Institute
The Cross-Cultural Training Institute is a program that provides students with an opportunity to develop skills and knowledge to be an effective facilitator and peer leader to Siena students who are involved in the Cross-Cultural Solidarity Experience program.
