The Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI)

Berea College’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion is proud to offer the Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) for both groups and individual members of Berea’s faculty and staff. According to the IDI website, the IDI is a tool used to measure an individual’s or group’s developmental level of intercultural competence, “the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities.” The short introductory video below has more information about this questionnaire:

Following the completion of an IDI, (a 50-item online questionnaire that takes from 15-20 minutes to complete), the individual and/or group may schedule a meeting to have a discussion with a Qualified Administrator, who facilitates interpreting the results, best practices, and strategies to move forward on the developmental continuum. The following individuals at Berea are Qualified Administrators of the IDI:

The Qualified IDI Administrators can also provide follow-up coaching and group training sessions alongside the survey completion and sharing of results. This comprehensive approach to use of the IDI has been shown to best support development of individuals and teams. The IDI may also be offered as part of professional development around topics including indigenization, internationalization, diversity, and inclusivity. To learn more about why you might want to take the IDI, visit this webpage. To see an example IDI individual profile report, please visit this link.
