Office for Equity and Diversity

DESCRIPTION:

If “Diversity is Everybody’s Everyday Work,” then where do I fit in?  How can I be part of this work if I never thought these issues were “my issues”?  This workshop introduces participants to the concept of being an ally. Participants explore how it’s possible, and why it’s necessary, to work toward access, inclusion, and support for marginalized and underrepresented students, faculty, staff, and community members, and for greater equity in all parts of our institution—even from our positions of privilege. (Click here for more info on the Certificate Program)
