The Department of Institutional Diversity and many other entities on campus currently does and will continue to provide opportunities to explore many different aspects of Diversity. For more information about this, please contact Emily Johnson or Nam Provost.
The Workshop consists of six, 2.5 hour sessions that total 15 hours.
Provide a foundation to move the College from "Good to Great" with regard to campus inclusiveness through the building of cross-racial competence at all levels of the campus community.
Building institutional capacity for Racial and Cultural competence is reflected in the Presidents' Initiatives, the College's Mission and the overall strategic plan that currently emphasizes the need to increase racial diversity within the student body. The Fostering the Roots of Cross Racial Competence curriculum was initially developed by CSS community members Nam Provost (Intercultural and Diversity Services) and Kevin Skwira-Brown (Adjunct, Social Work) in partnership with Duluth Community Action colleagues, Xavier Bell and Allegra Henderson.

Fostering the Roots of Cross-Racial Competence builds capacity within individuals to examine and change personal and institutional patterns that are barriers to full inclusion. The dynamic and responsive curriculum utilizes time for open dialogue and provides a setting of safety to overcome differences in order to answer the question "What does racial/cultural competence look like day to day?" The Workshop is designed for flexible delivery to accommodate varied academic schedules.
