A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The Howard Thurman Center offers a number of cultural competence and self-assessment activities to students throughout the year. Their website lists past events that were available to all students. The Center's staff also hosts specific trainings for constituents when asked (i.e. Student Government).

The Equal Opportunity Office provides formal training for managers, employees and administrators on sexual harassment, discrimination, and other EO topics. Training formats range from comprehensive two-hour sessions to updates and briefings during standing meetings, such as faculty and staff meetings, committee meetings and council meetings. Currently this information is not available on a website because it is offered by request to departments and other groups.
