Understanding Culture

Dr. Lawrence Muzinga is a professor in the Business Admin. department here on campus. He immigrated here from Congo after being selected to attend college here in the States. I had the opportunity to listen to his life story and the difficulties that he experienced learing a whole new language and culture. He also shared the difficulties of learning the double meanings of English language. I highly recommend reaching out to him and others that have awesome life stories. This site has some great reasons why it is important that we learn people’s diverse backgrounds: http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of-contents/culture/cultural-competence/culture-and-diversity/main.
