Registration required

Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Willie Fleming would like to cordially invite the campus community to attend the 2019 Summer Diversity Inclusion Institute.

Dr. Idella Glenn and Ms. Thereza Pizzuto of the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI), have been asked to co-facilitate the Institute to meet our specific goals toward a more inclusively excellent campus. Dr. Glenn and Ms. Pizzuto will demonstrate various skills and techniques on how faculty and staff can address difficult community issues and help us serve as a resource when emotional campus conflicts emerge.

Participants of the Institute will have the opportunity to learn how to:

  • Build allies
  • Cultivate relationships across campus communities
  • Use role-playing to shift attitudes relating to equity and inclusion concerns
  • Give appropriate responses and feedback to otherwise culturally insensitive messages
  • Develop deep listening skills

There will be two duplicate sessions offered to accommodate your busy schedules. There are only 35 seats per session and these will fill up quickly.
