A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

The LGBT Resource Center
Ally on gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender issues is the process of working to develop individual attitudes, institutions, and culture in which gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people feel they matter. In doing so, allies also work to end homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, and heterosexism. The LGBT Resource Center and the SODA committee of the Counseling Center offer LGBT Ally Trainings and Transgender Ally Trainings throughout the year.
Cultural Programming Fee
The purpose of the Student Cultural Programming Fee (SCPF) is to provide direction and allocation of resources for culture-specific programming for African American, Asian American, Latina/o, Native American, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and women’s programs and activities. The goal is to advance further cultural awareness, encourage diversity, educate the University of Illinois community as a whole, and provide a forum for the development, exploration, and improvement of cultural programs.
iUnite
I-Unite draws together over 30 events for all members of the University community to embrace the value of differences in individuals and communities, while exploring diversity and inclusion locally and globally. This campus-wide event is an exciting opportunity for the campus to learn about and celebrate the unique cultures and contributions of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Lunchtime Discussion Series
The Asian American Cultural Center, Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center, La Casa Cultural Latina, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resources Center, Native American House and the Women's Resource Center collaborate to host a series of lunchtime forum that provide audience members and participants with introductions to the cultures, histories, and societal issues that the diverse communities of our campus face. We welcome you to our centers and encourage you to connect with us.
