Strengthened Culture Competency of Graduate Students by Concomitantly Using Multiple Social Media Sites

Project Lead: 
Linda A. Landon
Project Description: 

Higher education has begun to use social media for instruction, making social media effects on cultural competency to be an important educational issue. The problem underlying the current study was that the relationship between graduate students’ areas of academic study, geographical region of origin, and use of social media sites and their cultural sensitivity aspects was unclear. This problem was important because the literature reflected inconsistent findings about the relationship between graduate students’ characteristics and their types of cultural sensitivity.
