About Us

The Office for Intercultural Learning is an academic intiative under Student Learning and Academic Services at Tidewater Community College.

Mission

The Office for Intercultural Learning (O.I.L.) will cultivate and sustain a learning environment that provides TCC students, faculty, and staff with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to be aware, understand, and appreciate the interconnectedness of the social and cultural dimensions within and across local, regional, state, national, and global communities.

Virginia Community College System

Learning Outcome: Social and Cultural Understanding

The O.I.L. supports the institution in addressing the Virginia Community College System (VCCS)'s learning outcome on social and cultural understand. The VCCS defines a socially and culturally competent person as one who possesses an awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the interconnectedness of the social and cultural dimensions within and across local, regional, state, national, and global communities. Degree graduates will demonstrate the ability to: assess the impact that social institutions have on individuals and cultures—past, present, and future; describe their own as well as others’ personal ethical systems and values within social institutions; recognize the impact that arts and humanities have upon individuals and cultures; recognize the role of language in social and cultural contexts; and, recognize the interdependence of distinctive world-wide social, economic, geopolitical, and cultural systems.
