Training and Education

The Office for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (ODEI) offers educational and learning opportunities for all students, faculty and staff at West Chester University (WCU).  In accordance with the University’s strategic plan, it is our intent to foster a campus environment that invites all community members to build upon their awareness, skills, and competencies related to diversity and inclusion topic areas.  ODEI works collaboratively with campus partners to provide consultation, resources, and support toward the advancement and sustainability of a positive campus climate for all.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of some of the topic areas that learning opportunities may provide:

  • Unconscious Bias            
  • Race/Color
  • Ethnicity
  • Culture
  • Class
  • Sexuality
  • Gender
  • Microaggressions
  • Religion
  • Search Committee Orientations (Process, Recruitment & Hiring)
  • Disabilities
  • Bystander Intervention
  • Sexual Harassment Prevention
  • and much more…

The 2019-20 schedule of diversity-related training and education will post here by Friday, August 30, 2019.  Stay tuned...
