CUE Requirement

The Cultural Understanding and Engagement (CUE) requirement helps prepare students for a rapidly changing and increasingly culturally complex world.  

Courses with the CUE designation are required to be 3 or more credits and substantively address at least one of the following areas: 

  • Understanding patterns and histories of inequity.
  • Understanding one or more cultures and the dynamics of cultural, racial, ethnic, and gender differences.
  • Preparing students for vocations with cultivation of diverse workplaces, conflict resolution, peacemaking, and community development.
  • Articulating reconciliation as participation in God’s reconciling work in the world.

Students are required to complete one CUE-designated course and many will be able to fulfill the CUE requirement as a part of their major’s requirements.
