This qualitative case study examines one faculty member's approach toward instilling culturally immersive experiences into graduate curriculum. Participants completed course assignments designed to enhance their multicultural understanding and competence.

Results indicated that the designed cultural immersion did assist students in transitioning their cultural knowledge from a basic understanding to a greater cultural competence.
