Our People: Terrence Harewood, Ph.D.

Terrence Harewood, Ph.D. is an instructor for the IDI Qualifying Seminar and an IDI Qualified Administrator since 2006. He is an Associate Professor of Multicultural Education and Social Foundations at the University of Indianapolis, where he teaches undergraduate, master’s level, and principal preparation candidates. His primary work involves the preparation of interculturally competent pre-service teachers and school leaders. Terrence has used the IDI to benchmark and measure the intercultural development growth for all students registered in his courses over the past several years. He has also used the IDI in conducting extensive research in his classes and in assessing the impact of short-term study abroad courses. His research examines the link between teachers’ intercultural competence and the rates by which they refer minority students for discipline. In a recently conducted study, he examined the relationship between participants who were exposed to information about the Intercultural Development Continuum (IDC) and their subsequent IDI scores. Harewood, a native of Barbados, West Indies, has also conducted extensive professional development using the IDI Guided Development framework to many educational institutions and districts, ranging from K-12, higher education, and Charter Schools.
