A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The Coalition for Community Dialogue (formerly Team Liberation) believes in justice for humanity through dialogue, continuous learning, and intentional experiences. CCD collaborated in courses, planning social justice conferences, Social Justice retreats (EWI and Racial Aikido), personalized workshops for OSU students and faculty.

CCD holds regular meetings and quarterly trainings. Additionally, CCD collaborates on annual conferences and sometimes planned workshops. Coalition for Community Dialogue enacts its vision through the following activities:

• Networking/Community-Building. We have weekly meetings: Community Network Meetings are open to the public; Cohort Network Meetings are for those pursuing a CCD certificate.
• Advanced Trainings. Trainings are held once per term
• Conference. We hold an annual conference with both introductory and more advanced sessions, intended to meet the needs and interests of a wide audience.
• Workshops. Classes and campus groups often request peer-facilitated workshops. Students who complete a CCD certificate program may choose to go on to an advanced program for facilitating workshops.

The workshops, events, and conferences CCD programmed include issues of racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism, ageism, ableism, religious intolerance, communication and community & leadership development.

The Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity also offers training around Affirmative Action, Americans with Disabilities Act and Sexual Harassment Prevention.
