Workshops & Training

Curently CDI is only accepting workshop requests for Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.

Submit a workshop request 3 weeks in advance.

Workshops are primarily 2.5 hour interactive in-person sessions designed to heighten the campus’ cultural competence, as outlined in AU’s Inclusive Excellence Plan. Further, each workshop aims to develop participants’ critical consciousness through meaningful self-reflection, exploration of how power operates, and actionable anti-oppressive tools. 

If you are looking for conversations over a multiple week time period, please see which sessions we are offering in our Intergroup Dialogue Program.

For faculty training and consultation, please visit The Center for Teaching, Research, & Learning.
