Complementary Resources for Creating a Climate of Belonging

Posted by Office of Diversity & Inclusion on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at 2:42 PM PDT

In conjunction with the implementation of the Campus Climate Protocol, the ODI and OIE are partnering to support our campus community in fostering intentional re-engagement for a thriving campus community.  Opportunities include: 

  • Educating for Justice and Professional Development:
    Incorporating inclusion and equity practices into the fabric of our everyday lives takes practice and is a primary means of shifting a culture of benevolence toward a culture of action and reflection. University departments, units, colleges, or student organizations interested in learning more about developing these practices are invited to contact Dr. Jill Moffitt, Assistant Vice President for the Office of Institutional Equity, to schedule a curated conversation or training to learn more, develop skills, and practice equity in action. Jill can be reached via email at jmoffitt@seattleu.edu.

  • Constructive Dialogue Series (Weekly Office) Hours:
    Additionally, for members of the campus community who can benefit from open discussion and reflection sessions around topics of inclusion, equity, and belonging, Jill Moffitt will hold open discussion and dialogue opportunities every Thursday from 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m. This initiative is one avenue toward examining topics of inclusion and belonging in an organic, constructive, and open-minded manner to advance the campus' collective learning. It is also a great way to connect with Jill if you have specific questions or concerns, and she is happy to assist you in this forum with the use of breakout rooms when needed to ensure privacy. The Constructive Dialogue Series is hosted via Zoom and all are invited to drop in when they are able.
