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

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The University of Arizona encourages cultural competency in many ways. For faculty and staff there are professional development courses that encourage faculty and staff to support multiple perspectives and promote respect of other cultures.

In addition to professional development, all students and employees may attend the SafeZone training workshops administered by the Center of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Studies. SafeZone training raises awareness to the issues that the LGBTQ community faces and promotes an inclusive atmosphere at the University of Arizona.

Lastly, employees can take university courses through the Qualified Tuition Reduction program allowing employees the opportunity to learn about a multitude of cultures and ideas.
