        On May 28, Chancellor Gary S. May wrote:

        “The events of this week also cause me to believe even more strongly, if that’s possible, in building an inclusive environment that recognizes and respects people of all backgrounds and experiences. I remain committed to that and hope you will do what you can to eliminate racism, sexism, and other negative influences on our progression as a nation.”

        We join Chancellor May in these efforts toward building diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment in the Department of Communication and at the University of California Davis.

        CMN 123 Intercultural Communication

        CMN 123 Intercultural Communication

        The rapid changes in the global economy, technology, transportation systems and immigration policies have made the world we are living in today an increasingly intersecting global village. California, for example, has become far more culturally diverse than ever before. As a result, direct contact with culturally different people in our communities, schools, workplaces and even families has become an almost inescapable part of our lives. The study of intercultural communication is about acquiring the necessary knowledge and communication skills to manage cultural differences appropriately and effectively so that we are better able to accomplish our personal, social and professional goals. Studying intercultural communication is also about developing a creative mindset to see things from different angles without rigid pre-judgment. It will not only raise our awareness of who we are but also some of our subconscious, deeply rooted assumptions and values, including those that are somewhat biased or flawed.
