Education

Our commitment to diversity education and cultural awareness training reflects our belief in learning as a lifelong process. As such, we aim to increase access to Charlotte’s growing ecosystem of diversity education and cultural awareness training offerings to support our students' and employees' personal and professional development. These opportunities seek to facilitate exposure to culturally relevant content within a system designed to support self-directed and self-paced learning.

As more content is added, we encourage you to sign up for DiversityEdu courses, explore our Community DEI Toolkit, and take part in a growing number of recommended cultural activities on campus and throughout the Charlotte community


DIVERSITYEDU

Located in Canvas, this online suite of diversity, equity, and inclusion course offerings are available to all of UNC Charlotte's faculty, staff, and students. The courses use current social science research in academic settings to introduce learners to skills for engaging with differences on campus; reinforce the skills and knowledge they already possess; expand options for engaging with diversity; and inform rather than direct decisions. Separate courses are available, which allows for each participant to learn personal, everyday skills relevant to their roles as well as foundational DEI knowledge. Participation is voluntary, though highly encouraged.


*You may also find the courses by logging into Canvas with NinerNet credentials and searching under Published Courses for "Training-DiversityEdu-Staff" and "Training- DiversityEdu-Faculty."
