Cultural Ambassador Program (CAP)


Consider the problems arising from the gap U.S. citizens have in their knowledge about other countries and cultures.  Now, consider the many international students studying at WSU and all that we can learn from them.  Students involved in the Cultural Ambassador Program introduce a realistic and personal element to learning more about other countries and cultures.  

Objective

The Wichita State University's Cultural Ambassador Program (CAP) is dedicated to bringing cultural awareness to the classroom and community.

Goals

  • To provide a comfortable setting for the exchange of ideas, beliefs, and points of view.
  • To enliven study units in courses such as world geography, history, literature, art, music, and civics.
  • To provide a basis for a comparative analysis of culture
  • To enable international visitors to gain a better understanding of U.S. culture, attitudes, and ideas through interaction with Wichitans.
