Faculty and staff have until Dec. 15 to apply to the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity’s 2018 Train the Champion program.
The Train the Champion program is designed to help faculty, staff and administrators become leaders in creating a more welcoming and inclusive campus environment. The program begins in January and concludes in November with a graduation ceremony.
Program participants meet monthly during 90-minute lunchtime sessions to explore and discuss various aspects of diversity. Sessions include guest speakers who discuss such topics as race, religion, gender, the LGBT community and disability.
Now in its eighth year, the program has been described by former participants as informative, valuable and transformative.
Since its inception in 2011, nearly 190 staff and faculty have completed the program.
