Cultural Competency Training

Safe Zone

 This training acts as a Safe Zone will be the first part of a Cultural Competency training series on campus. Safe zone will be campus-wide learning opportunities to engage topics including  LGBTQ+ identities, gender and sexuality, prejudice, assumptions, and privilege.  The Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has restructured Safe Zone training to align with current trends in support and allyship. Our community will now have access to introductory foundational training through the Office for DEI. 

Race Equity

Currently, we are offering an implicit bias training under this topic area. Understanding our own biases and the social impact of our assumptions is essential to moving toward a more inclusive society. While bias does not always come for a place of malice, its impacts can hurt our entire community. In this session, participants will learn what implicit or unconscious bias is, receive an overview of its harmful impact and gain a toolkit for addressing bias in their daily lives through exercises and videos. 

Ability Equity

Currently, not available.

Cultural Relativism
