Thickman Lecture: Cultural Competence and Study Abroad
Joseph Aguirre, M.Ed, will present a Thickman Faculty Lecture: “Cultural Competence and Study Abroad”.
When: Thursday, April 13, 2023 at 6 pm in the Whitney Academic Center #153 (Tiered Classroom) at Sheridan College.
As a previous under-represented college student from a large bi-racial family Joseph has seen the value of an education. Through his own personal education experience, he has learned that all students can succeed in college with the correct amount of challenge and support. He believes that the diversity of knowledge only enriches the cultural capital of under-represented students. Joseph is a strong believer in providing under-represented and non-traditional students the opportunity to travel/study abroad. Creating service-learning programs designed to promote diplomacy has been a true passion for him.
