Multicultural Advising Portfolio Self-Assessment Checklist

Directions: This matrix is designed as a practical tool for students as they identify and evaluate their multicultural advising skills to
include in their multicultural advising portfolio. Students are invited to rate themselves on each dimension. In each box, a student can list
examples of multicultural advising performance in that area. If you have strong evidence in self-awareness for example, in the first box you
would list activities that demonstrate your strong evidence rating. What you list is entirely up to you. It could be attending community
events, doing reading, attending lectures, or volunteer activities. This rating scale is designed as a student-learning tool to guide a students
multicultural advising skill development.
