Spring 2022 Diversity Learning Series

The Office of Inclusive Excellence is pleased to offer a Diversity Learning Series, a collection of workshops on issues related to equity and inclusion. The workshops are open to all faculty and staff. The purpose of the series is to offer content knowledge and practical skills, based largely on the results of the Diversity Mapping Project and the Campus Climate Study. The primary outcome is to promote a positive campus environment for student, faculty, and staff success, with renewed attention to the socio-political climate, and following the University Strategic Plan Priority 2: Inclusive Excellence.

Certificate of Completion: The issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion are becoming increasingly broad and complex. To acknowledge those faculty and staff who have acquired a foundational base of content knowledge and skills, we are offering a Certificate of Completion to those who complete the core courses as well as 1 elective (NCBI, Safe Zone, or Social Justice Dialogues) within 2021-2022 academic year*.

Campus Partners: The Office of Inclusive Excellence and various campus offices partner to make this series possible. These partners include the Center for Black Student Success, College Support Programs, the Otter Cross-Cultural Center, and the Personal Growth and Counseling Center. Additionally, some campus staff and faculty are providing their expertise as presenters for workshops. Thank you to all who are contributing to this series.

*Or a minimum of 4 total elective hours
