Description: For brevity's sake, Reynolds (1995) lists seven competencies for student affairs' professionals which include the following: "an appreciation and knowledge of the history, current needs, strengths, and resources of communities and individuals who have historically been underserved or underrepresented; 2 an awareness of one's own biases and cultural assumptions; 3 content knowledge about culturally related terms and concepts such as worldview, acculturation, and identity development; 4 the ability to use that knowledge and awareness to make more culturally sensitive and appropriate interventions; 5an accurate self-assessment of one's multicultural skills and comfort level; and 6 an awareness of the cultural assumptions underlying the helping process" (Reynolds and Pope, 1997, 423). [...] it is imperative that practitioners not accept these competencies or any list of competencies as a prescription for success.
