Diversity & Inclusion

Building Bridges With Language and Cultural Competencies

In order to truly understand the cultural context of another person’s thinking and doing, knowing their language, even just some of their language, opens doors for establishing interpersonal relationships, and builds bridges that will lead to increased productivity and create a competitive edge for the individual as well as their organization.

The experiential setting of a Concordia Language Villages language and cultural immersion program provides the ideal environment to encounter, discover, and explore another culture. In a supportive setting and surrounded by a community of learners, real work gets done toward building cross-cultural competencies and language skills.

Concordia Language Villages is committed to the values of diversity, equity and inclusion in our programming and employment. Concordia Language Villages affirms a diversity of identities, experiences and perspectives in our programming and employment opportunities, leading all who learn, play and work here to honor difference with respectful understanding and to practice courageous global citizenship, in line with our mission; without regard for race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, military status, age nor socioeconomic status.
