The Cultural Competency Unit is generating knowledge and ways to transform local and international communities, conducting research in cultural competency education and cultural competency in practice.

The research projects we conduct are highly interdisciplinary and collaborative. Not only do we interrogate the status quo of cultural competency as a subject matter, but we also engage in developing new methodologies for researching cultural competency. 

We welcome researchers to get in touch with us to explore collaboration. We also welcome potential PhD candidates to contact us and discuss opportunities to do a PhD under any of these topics.
