At the College of Engineering, we believe we are the most innovative when we have teams made up of diverse backgrounds and perspectives. One way we can build a culture where all feel welcome is to avoid committing microaggressions in our communications and interactions with one another. This online training is to support staff and faculty in working together toward this shared vision.

This online, self-paced course is offered approximately every two weeks. Once the course begins, participants will have two weeks to complete.

The average time to complete the course is 2.5 hours.

Schedule for future courses:

  • Wednesday, February 14-27

  • Wednesday, February 28-Tuesday, March 12


“I personally really like it because it addressed every perspective (perpetrator, bystander, victim) and how it impacts everyone. As someone who has been in this work for years I learned new things from this presentation.”

— Kaytie Ohashi, Academic Counselor
