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.

If you are interested in completing all four of the Diversity Workshops, you will have the option to earn a Diversity Certificate that can be referenced in future opportunities (internships, grad school applications, future jobs)!
