In light of RIT’s framework for Inclusive Excellence, this interactive workshop presents academic advisers with a variety of tools and knowledge that promote *multicultural competencies; these competencies can be applied to the special needs of students from a variety of underrepresented populations, including (AALANA) races, genders, and sexual orientations.
The program provides:
- The opportunity to learn more about each population
- Opportunities to identify strategies for interaction
- Accessible resources for on-going references and referrals
- Development of a common model/strategy that can be used to assess and engage students effectively. Discussion draws on the experience and expertise of the professionals who work within the office of the Chief Diversity Officer, and also the program participants.
Offered annually to Advisers in the Spring semester. See the CPD class offerings.
