Diversity and Leadership Training

The mission of the Diversity Education Initiatives (DEI) is to create learning environment and opportunities that support the University mission by preparing students to become leaders in a global society. Specifically, the DEI offers workshops and trainings designed for students to become self-aware, culturally competent, civically engaged, and critical thinkers.

If you are unable to participate in EMBRACE, Diversity Dialogues, or other pre-scheduled MLC programs, but would still like to pursue diversity education and training, please review the list of workshops below.

**Workshops will only be conducted if a minimum of five participants sign up and confirm**

Please note : It’s our policy to start and end workshops on time. Arriving late interrupts the facilitator and creates disruptions for the participants. This affects the quality of learning and the comfort level of the group, which in turn, inhibits discussions and prevents us from accomplish our learning objectives.
