Training and Education

The Office of Student Inclusion and Diversity (OSID) strives to create a robust and inclusive campus environment that provides a transformative intercultural experience. Consequently, OSID provides training and education that promotes: increased awareness of self and others; an understanding of and knowledge about diverse cultures, identities, and communities; and, strategies and techniques for taking action to communicate and work with diverse groups, identify and openly discuss cultural differences and issues, challenge biases and discrimination and facilitate the development of a culture that is inclusive. As a result, students will be better prepared to engage in and contribute to a diverse and interdependent global society.
