The purpose of the Diversity Education Program is to increase awareness and acceptance of diversity. This program focuses on enhancing individual’s understanding of their own identity and culture; expanding knowledge of other cultures and identities; promoting involvement in diverse activities and communication with other cultures; raising awareness about social issues and injustices; and developing culturally competent leaders within the campus community.
The Diversity Education Program members develop and facilitate workshops covering a variety of topics that address cultural similarities and differences, race, ethnicity, class, gender, identity development, stereotypes, communicating across boundaries, and social issues. The workshops are a great opportunity for the campus community to strengthen their understanding of diversity and related topics. Please note that presentations can be design to meet the specific needs of your class or group.
