Education & DIALOGUE

Cultural competency dialogues  allow UToledo employees and other vested individuals an opportunity to increase their awareness and understanding of cross-cultural connections. Participants share in constructive dialogue about differences and similarities between our cultures, beliefs and views.

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion facilitates faculty and staff dialogues to increase our collective competency within several different focuses. The Office of Multicultural Student Success manages diversity workshops for undergraduate and graduate students.

One of the core values of the University is diversity. It is not enough, however, to state that we value diversity. We must also strive toward an inclusive and equitable campus environment. To support this work, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has launched this page to serve as a resource to the campus community to support our efforts to move toward racial equity on our campus.

We recognize it will require continuous updates and changes, as a working document.
