How NKU Moved Beyond Cultural Competency to Provide Equity (Re)Education
The shift from campus compliance to critical thinking 

After spending decades investing in diversity training with less than stellar results, higher ed leaders are still working tirelessly to find the right path toward a more inclusive campus. Yet, it's not necessarily training; it's reeducation to address skill gaps that prohibit faculty, advisors, and staff from fully supporting and serving our BIPOC and other underserved student groups.

In this session, EAB researcher Meacie Fairfax welcomes Northern Kentucky University's Frank Robinson and Megan LaDow to share their innovative certificate program. This program, which is available to all staff from across the university, includes workshops and discussion-based experiences that build on their knowledge across topics like inclusivity, cultural competency, and bias-related issues.

Watch the webinar to learn how your institution can develop an education-based training curriculum to inform and change daily interactions, meetings, written communication, and conversations with your diverse community as you work to build inclusive campus culture.

In this session, you'll learn how to help your campus:
  • Gain buy-in from stakeholders
  • Create a robust library of in-house resources
  • Establish a practice of timely and frequent discussions on equity and inclusion challenges, and
  • Address the needed upskilling of your advisors, faculty, and staff.
