Auburn to be training base for 'Culture Bump'

Tools

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn University officials say the school will serve as a training base for a global communication training process called the Culture Bump Approach.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports (http://bit.ly/XZhEPE) that the Culture Bump is a possible solution to facing global and domestic issues.

The university recently reached an agreement with Culture Bump creator Carol Archer, licensing the university with the ability to offer workshops, seminars and training certification courses through the Auburn University Biggio Center's Cultural Insight Program.

Stacey Nickson of the Biggio Center says the goal of the Culture Bump is "to teach you how to manage your emotional responses to cultural differences."

She says it involves teaching people how to manage their emotional responses when they encounter someone with a different cultural background -- and how to connect with them.
