Some of our current collaborations include: SCC Armchair Traveler Program: In collaboration with the Global Education team, the office has introduced staff and students to the online database “CultureGrams,” which 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. Staff receives .5 hour diversity credit for reviewing a trio of select countries each month. SCC Speakers Workshops: The Access/Equity/Diversity Office has also collaborated with the Office of Professional Development and supported diversity credit for speakers and programs presented to SCC staff. Recent programs and speakers include the documentary “Call of Dudy” and demonstrations of the Czech bagpipe; the Taste of Wales festival; lectures by Ellen James and Douglas Blackmon; activities at the Sheldon Art Museum and Homestead National Monument of America in Beatrice; the annual Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast; and the Otis Young Lecture Series on Religion and Ethics.
