Intercultural Competence Outcomes of a STEM Living-Learning Community.

From the abstract: "The purpose of this study was to determine whether participation in a “global science” living–learning community can increase the intercultural competence of first year international and domestic students, as measured by a well-known quantitative instrument, the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI)."

Undergraduate Data Science and Diversity at Purdue University

From the abstract: "The vision of Purdue University's Integrative Data Science Initiative is to be at the forefront of advancing data science-enabled research and education. Tightly coupling theory, discovery, and applications, while providing students with an integrated data science-fluent campus ecosystem, this initiative is designed for college graduates at Purdue University to have Big Data experiences in academics. Faculty and staff of the university assist students through curriculum, research, residential life and professional development.

"In this paper, [the authors] present the framework for this initiative, which includes outlining course offerings, describing the residential living communities and workforce development on campus."

Assessing the Impact of Curriculum Integration on the Intercultural Learning Gains of First-Year Computer Science Students

From the abstract: "In this work-in-progress paper, we discuss the impact of an interactive online module on the development of the intercultural competence of twenty-five first-year computer science students. After completing the online module, students were required to reflect on a scenario where the student's role was to manage a culturally diverse team. The students were asked to identify the cultural differences that could lead to conflicts on the team and to reflect on the ways cultural differences could benefit the team."
