Training and Education Opportunities

Student Diversity Workshops

The Office of Multicultural Student Success offers the following four Diversity Workshops for students. The four
Diversity Workshop options are meant to build on each other and students are encouraged to start with Awareness of Self and move through the four workshops.


1. Awareness of Self: In this workshop, students will define terms related to diversity, explore their
own identity, and engage in conversations about how their identity has impacted their
experience.
2. Awareness of Actions: In this workshop, students will be given the opportunity to explore any
stereotypes or biases they hold, engage in conversations about how stereotypes and biases can
impact experiences, and how to effectively address microaggressions.
3. Awareness of Systems of Oppression: In this workshop, students will begin by identifying
institutions that people receive messages from. After institutions are listed, students will define
and discuss different isms and the communities they impact.
4. Awareness of Current Events: In this workshop, students will discuss current events and how the
institutions and isms from the previous Diversity Workshop play a role in those events. Students
will also brainstorm direct and indirect actions they can do on campus to address the current
events.

Safe Place Training

A Safe Place is a confidential place free from homophobia, transphobia, bipohobia, and heterosexism where people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, queer, or questioning can feel welcome, safe, and included. During Safe Place Training, participants are introduced to LGBTQ-related terminology, provided information on common issues and challenges face by LGBTQ individuals, what it means to be an LGBTQ Ally, and International, National, State, Local and UT resources.

The Summer 2019 Safe Place Training dates are as follows:

Thursday, July 11th - 9am-12pm
Tuesday, July 23rd - 9am-12pm

(Un)documented Student Ally Training

With a rising undocumented student population on campuses around the country, it is important to recognize the needs of this group, as well as the institutional hurdles that exist. The training will help participants understand the unique challenges that these students face. It also focuses on campus and community resources that are available. Join us for this interactive session in which we will highlight ways in which this population of students experience their higher education journey differently than others. 

Summer 2019 Training Dates TBA!
