The intercultural communication competence (ICC) assessment working group, of the World Council on Intercultural & Global Competence (iccglobal.org/), is attempting to map intercultural competence assessment around the world, with a short (10-minute) survey of practice.  The results of this research will be published as a chapter in an open-accessed book next year, which will be available to everyone in the world! This effort is being spearheaded by Dr. Curtis Chu, of Setsunan University in Japan and Dr. Callie Debellis, of Meredith College in the USA.   The committee is particularly eager to get responses from outside the English-speaking world, so the survey is available in 9 world languages.  Please consider taking a few minutes today to answer the survey yourself, and to share it with your scholarly networks around the globe!  Thank you!

You can find the links to the surveys in different languages below. Please note that they are on Google forms, except for the Chinese version which is in Microsoft form (accessible in China).
