Applications are being accepted for the Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity’s 2013 class of the Train the Champion program. The program started in 2011 and has been highly praised by former and current participants as one of the office’s signature programs.
Train the Champion is designed to help faculty and staff members become leaders in creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment on campus. It begins in January and concludes in November with a “graduation” ceremony. Program participants meet monthly during 90-minute lunchtime sessions in which they explore various aspects of diversity. Session topics include race, religion, generational differences, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and disability issues.
