Intercultural Competence and Undoing Racism (ICUR) Offerings

Nurturing the skills to relate well across cultures, resist oppression and seek God’s justice is a crucial part of AMBS’s mission, both within and outside of our learning community. The ICUR coordinator, Nekeisha Alayna Alexis, and the ICUR team are essential in carrying out this work.

ICUR: Beyond AMBS

Nekeisha is available as a consultant through the AMBS Church Leadership Center to support inclusion and anti-oppression efforts of faith-based, nonprofit and grassroots organizations; businesses and individuals. This work involves a distinct focus on institutional change through a blend of:

  • strategic planning
  • long- and short-term coaching
  • lectures and workshops
  • Intercultural Development Inventory assessment and development (IDI)
  • other integrated services

ICUR: At AMBS

All incoming students participate in an Identity, Power and Privilege orientation; take the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI); and create intercultural competence goals for their time of study. The ICUR team’s work in educational, structural and relational areas also assists professors, administrators and staff as we educate Christians from diverse social locations for leadership and ministry.
