COS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in collaboration with AdvanceRIT
College of Science Lecturer Workshop

COS Lecturers! Join us to learn about self-advocacy and enhancing community in the workplace, and to envision an even better and more supportive COS community for NTT faculty.

Inclusion Coach for Educational Equity

This is the first of two workshops for COS Lecturers and will focus on self-advocacy, enhancing community, and mindset. Our intention with this workshop is to create a space for NTT Faculty to think collectively about what would make the COS environment feel more supportive, inclusive, and enjoyable. Our second workshop will be held on October 13 and will include a listening session for participants to share their ideas and requests back to COS leadership.
