Language and Culture Education

Our language and culture workshops help businesses and providers develop skills to connect with and serve the growing multicultural community in the Deep South.

At the Institute, we focus on cultural humility, which involves practicing lifelong learning, challenging power imbalances, and exercising self-reflection
and critique.
