Leadership for Diversity and Inclusion (LDIT) delivered a series of several training sessions, including Fundamentals, Race, Ethnicity & Nationality; Gender & Sexual Orientation; Socio-Economic Status; Ability & Disabilities and Religion & Spirituality. Participants will gain an increased awareness of the importance of diversity, as well as tools and strategies to better foster inclusion within the campus and community. All training sessions are offered on a rotating basis each fall and spring through the Center for Equity and Inclusion.

Pratt's Center for Teaching and Learning hosted forums and meetings that aim to bring together the Pratt community for discussion that will broaden and deepen our collective thinking about diversity. Discussions included questions in our learning environments related to race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, first-generation students, LGBTQIA students, international students, and students of different abilities (neuro-diversity).
