Does the institution make cultural competence trainings and activities available to all students?:
A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:
CSU Channel Islands offers various cultural competence trainings and activities.
SAFE On Campus provides an avenue through which all members of the campus community can actively show their support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people. SAFE On Campus members identify themselves by displaying the SAFE On Campus sign at their office. Members attend an orientation session, following which they receive the SAFE On Campus logo. By displaying the logo, members signal to students and employees that they can be “out” or reveal their sexual orientation or gender identity. In addition, members can serve as a valuable source to help locate resources on campus, or help report harassment or discrimination.
Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) is a student-centered program that provides college access to students whose educational and economic circumstances have limited their college opportunities. EOP aids in the success of students by providing a comprehensive program of active and targeted support aimed at increasing academic accomplishment and individual empowerment.
Color Me! provides networking workshops during all summer orientations that allow students to color their own t-shirt that is focused on multiculturalism and concludes with a dinner when school begins to reunite the campus community. Sponsored by Multicultural Programs.
Day of Silence at CSU Channel Islands occurs on the National Day of Silence. This program educates students about anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.
Coming Out Stars training specifically pertaining to the LGBT community that is done with student groups and in classrooms.
Multicultural and Sensitivity Training with Student Leaders (Resident Assistants, Orientation Leaders, LEAP Squad, EOP Student Mentors, Student Assistants, and other students are encouraged to participate)
