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

A brief description of the cultural competence trainings and activities:

*The Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center hosted a training session for faculty and staff to blend diversity-based concepts into the curriculum:

• Faculty and staff participants engaged in a two-day workshop in summer 2011 designed to increase their understanding of what characterizes an inclusive curriculum. They then met monthly to further deepen their understanding of diversity concepts and develop assignments, methods and assessment tools for their spring courses that would reflect an inclusive curriculum.

*In fall 2011 and fall 2012, Student Services sponsored a training session for all student employees with cultural diversity covered as one of the topics. In 2011, the training session was led by the Director of Multicultural Student Services (MSS) and in 2012, the training session was led by the Assistant Director of MSS.

*University Housing facilitates training sessions, which are intended to increase the cultural competence of Resident Advisers, Desk Service Managers, and Academic Resource Coordinators. The competencies are listed as follows:
· discuss how their values affect their perceptions of privilege

· explore the concept of privilege and oppression as they relate to identity groups
· identify the difference between a hate crime and a bias incident
