Interpersonal Efficacy is the intersection of empathy, self-awareness, cultural competency, and the ability to navigate diverse contexts with ease. It is one of the most important indicators for success in college and beyond.
It requires one to:
know one’s strengths and needs
listen actively and observe intentionally
reflect on and evaluate how behaviors and attitudes influence both self and others
discern and engage respectfully with others in various cultures and contexts
cultivate empathy and mutual respect
employ multiple identities, while maintaining consistency of character
develop healthy, authentic and productive relationships
build alliances and networks
inspire a unified sense of direction in others
facilitate connections between group and world
Students and faculty make important connections daily and each student is equipped with their own personal team.
