Texas Tech University

For Instructors of Record: Multicultural Courses

Texas Tech University conducts annual assessments of student learning in designated Multicultural courses. These assessments aim to inform our understanding of whether students graduating from Texas Tech University are able to demonstrate awareness and knowledge of distinctive cultures or subcultures, including but not limited to ethnicity, race, gender, class, political systems, religions, sexual orientation, languages, or human geography. The Multicultural Assessment rubric, available to in the menu bar to the right, specifically addresses the following student learning outcomes:

  • Students will demonstrate intercultural awareness, knowledge and skills in written, verbal, and behavioral activities (e.g., service-learning, co-curricular and similar experiences).
  • Students will exhibit the ability to engage constructively with individuals and groups, across diverse social contexts.
  • Students will appraise privilege relationships at different levels (interpersonal, local, regional, national, and international) and explain how these relationships affect the socioeconomic and cultural status of individuals and groups.
