The following is the definition of cultural competence as adopted for programming and classroom use by the Penn State Beaver Campus Climate and Diversity Committee:

Cultural competence educational outcomes may be framed as (1) facilitating better understanding of cultural identities, (2) enhancing students' abilities to identify similarities and differences across cultures and articulating this with others, and (3) supporting pride among various cultural groups (Howard Hamilton, et al., 1998).
