Cultural Competency: Moving from cultural awareness to cultural competency first requires identification of where we are in terms of our cultural awareness. Once identified individuals and organizations can develop a plan to increase their cultural competency so that they are able to apply what they have learned.

Diversity Workshops: Diversity training fosters a more diverse, inclusive, respectful and productive organization. Individuals learn how to be more respectful and appreciative of difference and how that difference increases their interpersonal relationships and productivity.

Diversity Communication and Engagement: Conversations are one of the most important and influential aspects of our lives. Language has different meanings in different cultures and it is necessary that we recognize this difference and expand on our communications with others.

Recruitment, Retention and Management: A diverse environment contributes to the dynamics of our institutions. Support for the diverse individuals recruited allows for growth and expansion of the mission of organizations.

Program Development: Biases and behaviors are so deeply ingrained that they simply can’t be taught away in a one-day workshop. A systematic on-going program is necessary to truly affect the culture of inclusiveness that makes systemic and effective changes. Assessment: Thorough assessment of the programs, services, and culture of your organization helps to develop programs that effectively allow your goals and objectives to be reached.

Multicultural Advising: Incorporates strategies and approaches for working with a wide range of identities including race, ethnicity, gender, first generation, low income, veterans, adult learners, and underprepared students and employees.

Learning Communities: Living learning communities have proven to be one of the most effective retention tools for diverse and marginalized populations. They must be structured and intentional in order to be effective.
