About ICC

“Culture … is a shared and negotiated system of meaning informed by knowledge that people learn and put into practice by interpreting experience and generating behavior.”

Lassiter, Luke E. Invitation to Anthropology (New York: Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, Inc., 2006).

Our mission is to instruct, cultivate and connect.
