Diversity Events and Workshops

Experiences of diverse graduate students

The CFANS Office for Diversity and Inclusion has partnered with International Student and Scholar Services and the Office for Diversity in Graduate Education to create a workshop which focuses on bridging cultural differences between faculty members and graduate students of diverse and international backgrounds and creating an inclusive educational environment. The workshop uses clips from the video "Breaking Boundaries: Graduate Student Perspectives on Cultural and Ethnic Identity in the Academy," created by the Office for Equity and Diversity, and includes interactive activities and discussion. Departments and units interested in this workshop should contact Emily at eehling@umn.edu or 624-7953.

Diversity in the curriculum workshops

The University's Office for Equity and Diversity (OED) and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), in collaboration with the CFANS Office for Diversity and Inclusion, invite faculty members to engage in a hands-on workshop where they can revise syllabi or specific segments of their courses to include more consideration of diversity and make them more attractive to diverse students. These workshops are offered on an ongoing basis. Faculty members will be notified when sessions are offered.
