dc.description.abstractHigher Education is characterized by the open-mindedness that it proposes to inculcate in its scholars, thus, preparing them to adopt a relational approach capable of permeating all forms of differences. However, reality on the ground doesn’t always support this vision. Universities here, and elsewhere, are not necessarily prominent as important elements in the intercultural dialog. This leads us to question whether the university training, educational program, and general environment, contain enough elements that would lead to recognizing and accepting cultural differences, rising to the existing challenges of multiculturalism, and possibility becoming the springboard for a better knowledge and acceptance of the Other?
