Does the institution make cultural competence trainings and activities available to all students?:
A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:
The Cultural Center provides cultural competency and diversity education for students. Staff from the Cultural Center participate in diversity training sessions during Welcome Weekend, offered the Thursday-Friday before the beginning of the fall semester. Welcome Weekend hosts events and activities designed to help students focus on beginning the academic year. Cultural Center staff teach diversity sections of the Campus Culture classes required for all incoming undergraduate students. In addition, every Wednesday of the month the Center collaborates with other units and organizations to host educational workshops for students and employees.
The Cultural Center in collaboration with the Office of First Year Initiatives provides "Difficulty of Difficult Discussions" training for students and staff. This training is designed to engage participants in dialogue about difficult cultural topics, and provide them with tools to successfully navigate these topics with others.
