Equity Professional Development Offerings
The following is a list of Professional Development Offerings for Faculty to use to improve their skills and abilities regarding equity in their teaching, counseling, and other services. Equity work is best viewed as an ongoing practice of continual improvement. While there cannot be a checklist or a minimum number of hours needed to be considered "equity trained", for the benefit of your students, please plan on spending a significant amount of time each semester learning and applying new equity skills. The following is a list of resources to help you as you strive to become more equity minded.
To serve on a faculty selection committee, faculty are required to participate in at least two hours of training from among this list (withing the previous 12 months) according to AP 7120. You are responsible for keeping track of your equity trainings and reporting them to your division chair before you can be appointed to a faculty selection committee.
Is there an equity training opportunity that you would like us to add to this list? If so, please send an email to the Faculty Professional Development Committee and we will review your request.
Equity Training Information & Offerings:
*Some options require fees or registration. Please reach out to the Faculty Professional Development Committee or Student Equity for funding support.
