Intercultural Engagement pushes forward student-centred initiatives and opportunities that promote greater inclusion and community-building at Yale-NUS College. In activating diversity consciousness, the programme creates initiatives for students to engage in dialogue where opportunities for cultivating greater vulnerability and bravery are met safely. We value an integrated practice of intercultural engagement and competence across the full student experience at Yale-NUS College.
An annual Yale-NUS College tradition that serves to elevate our community values and catalyse conversations across campus that centre diversity and inclusion.
This week-long programme engages all members of the community in celebrating our collective diversity, engaging in dialogue pertaining to themes of identity, power and privilege, and furthering our commitment to strengthen inclusion and belonging in the community.
