Diversity Equity and Inclusion


Our department provides training (e.g., Unconscious Bias and Safe Zone workshops), programs and events (e.g., our International Festival or the NALSA Powwow) in collaboration with campus partners to better understand and serve our students and community. If you would like us to come to your department or organization to provide a workshop tailored to your needs, please contact us.
