The world is dynamic and requires leaders be cognitively ready to adapt to ever changing environmental paradigms. 

The FBIT Experience Workshop (XBIT 2500) course seeks to broaden students’ perspectives of the world through experiencing different ethnic, artistic, athletic, religious, social, professional, academic, or other cultures.  The experiences are intended to give students the foundation to view problems from different perspectives.  Students who successfully complete this course will have increased creative and adaptive problem-solving skills.  In addition, increased familiarity with non-congenital cultures will increase understanding and empathy and decrease ethnocentrism, important and valued qualities in an increasingly diverse working environment.

XBIT 2500 is intended to open doors of discovery to new ideas and value systems.  Students will experience and accept the world as a complex connection of ideas, where no field of knowledge can stand apart from all others.
