What is the purpose of the Faculty Institute for Diversity: Train the Trainer Workshop?

The Faculty Institute for Diversity: Train the Trainer Workshop brings together a community of leaders interested in creating inclusive teaching programming on their campuses. The workshop is designed to prepare new and seasoned trainers in the development of a diversity institute tailored to your institution.

Why was the Faculty Institute for Diversity created?

The Faculty Institute for Diversity at Cornell was created for full-time tenure-track and tenured faculty to engage in complex discussions on diversity, to create a network of teachers and scholars who can serve as a resource for one another on matters of diversity and education, and to encourage participants to incorporate diversity and address the needs of diverse learners in new or revised courses.

Why should you come?

This workshop will be facilitated by seasoned experts who have successfully conducted diversity institutes for several years. The workshop content offers research-based and practical methods that can be easily adapted to a variety of higher education settings. You will leave with a plan for conducting your own workshop.
