These campus-wide educational programs honor and explore the experiences of historically underrepresented groups (i.e., African American, Asian and Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, women, and GLBTQ communities).
These enhanced sensitivity workshops on LGBTQ issues are offered on a quarterly basis and are open to faculty, staff, and students, as well as the general community.
