In recent years, there has been a stronger emphasis on recent years, there has been a stronger emphasis on the need for cultural literacy, which has allowed educators to step up and teach aspects of diversity education. These types of courses allow students from any background to gain a better understanding of self, as well as learn how to communicate, ask questions, and seek understanding from individuals in other cultural contexts. Focused specifically on equipping students with skills necessary to communicate across cultures, this study examined the learning and application experiences of self-identified white students after they completed an intercultural communication course. Using interviews to understand the students’experiences, the researchers derived four major themes: the need for a safe classroom environment, a better understanding of identity and self, value and need for the course in undergraduate curricula, and room to grow. This study explores these experiences to help educators within the field of agriculture and natural resources better-navigate the development of their diversity education courses to be salient and productive with their students.
