Registration is now open for Diversity 101!

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is partnering with MU Extension to offer:

Diversity 101:  DEI in the Academic Workplace
Fully online professional development course
January 23-June 7, 2023

This course is free and open to all UM System employees, so it presents a unique opportunity to engage with folks from all four campuses, as well as Extension faculty and staff from around the state.

In this highly interactive online course, you will gain knowledge, awareness, and communication skills for providing leadership around diversity and inclusion issues; working more effectively with people from backgrounds different than your own; and for making our campuses more welcoming and inclusive for everyone.  This peer-learning centered course is designed to engage people who are new to the topic as well as those who had more exposure to these topics and issues.

Full participation in the course involves review and reflection of the content (on Canvas) so that you can actively participate in one online (asynchronous) dialogue per module (total of 9). There are also four live Zoom dialogues (February 1, March 8, April 26, and June 7).  Participants will earn a digital badge for completion of the course requirements.
