Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) Data

In 2017, HESC faculty, staff and graduate students participated in the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) and training workshop led by Dr. Leslie Edgar.

  • On average, the IDI was 98.69, falling within Minimization, which is focusing on similarities and “color-blindness”.
  • Approximately 21% of HESC was in Acceptance or Adaptation.

For the next two years, HESC implemented DEI trainings/workshops on cultural competence, microaggressions and other topics.

  • In 2019, HESC faculty, staff and graduate students were again assessed in their IDI by Brande Flack, Director of Retention Programs for the U of A Center for Multicultural and Diveristy Education, and it grew significantly to 113.82 (high Minimization) with over 50% of HESC in Acceptance or Adaptation.
  • Faculty and staff stated the DEI trainings were indeed helpful in their cultural competence growth, as well as implementing these ideas, conversations and other DEI topics into their teaching curriculum.

HESC is currently being assessed in the 3rd wave of IDI testing in March 2021 as Bumpers College is training all faculty and staff in cultural competence. Adrain Smith, Program Specialist for the U of A Center for Multicultural and Diveristy Education, is leading the 2021 trainings.
