Educational Programs

Offering educational programs is an important element of the work done at the Office of Equal Opportunity.  The Office staff provides workshops on a variety of nondiscrimination topics, some of which are mandated by state law.

We also have a small library of materials on topics of discrimination, diversity, and inclusion.  The campus community is welcome to make use of the resources in our library.

If you have questions about the programming offered or would like to schedule a workshop in your department or unit, please contact us.
