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

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The Arts, Sciences, and Engineering Office of Diversity Education and Development provides workshops and other educational sessions, is a resource for consultations, develops a variety of resource materials, and helps to plan some diversity-related events on campus. Examples include:

* Workshops on topics such as Teaching Diverse Student Populations; Invisible Differences: Sexual Orientation in the Classroom; and Diversifying Curriculum Content.
* The Inclusive Classroom Project, which provides small grants for faculty who want to work on their curriculum and/or pedagogy to increase their inclusivity of diversity at Tufts.
* Consultations to departments and programs on issues related to diversity, such as how to carry out an assessment of the state of diversity in a department (Who are the students? Who are the faculty and staff? What are we teaching? How are we teaching and learning?)
* Consultations to individual faculty on how to create inclusive and nonbiased environments for their teaching and advising.
