Does the institution make cultural competence trainings and activities available to all employees?:

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

PSU Faculty, staff and students made clear they are eager to embrace efforts to create a climate that values diversity and exemplifies mutual respect.
At the same time, many pointed out that it can be difficult to know how best to respond to sensitive situations involving workplace and campus behavior – and asked for additional learning tools to assist you in that regard. We now have such a tool: an on-line education learning module available for all employees entitled: “Creating a Culture of Respect: Preventing Prohibited Discrimination and Unlawful Harassment.”
All faculty, staff and student employees have been asked to complete the learning module in order to advance our efforts to make Portland State University a more inclusive place to work and learn.
