In collaboration with the Global Education team, the office has introduced staff and students to two online databases:“CultureGrams” and "A to Z World Food".

  • The CultureGrams database offers reports for 190 countries and territories. Each report includes 25 categories such as land and climate, history, personal appearance, greetings, gestures, family, diet, holidays, economy, education, health, and events and trends.
  • “A to Z World Food” introduces users to thousands of international recipes, hundreds of fascinating culture and ingredient articles, and essential culinary resources for countries ranging from Albania to Zimbabwe.

Staff receives 0.5 hour diversity credit for reviewing a trio of select countries each month.
