Programs to Assist the University Community

Understanding Unity, Creating Community

You don't have to feel like you're the 'only one'! Join a student of color group that helps reduce isolation, explores racial identity development, internalized racism and strategies for creating systemic change.

White Allies Group

This is a group available for students to discuss white privilege and how to utilize it to fight oppression.

Heartwork​ & other workshops

These workshops allow the opportunity for authentic dialogue about challenging oppression and dismantling the systems that keeps it in place- specifically fear, ignorance, and power. We offer a variety of trainings to increase multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills for students, faculty, and staff.
