Training and Development is one essential factor in cultivating an equity-mindedness campus culture.
ODEI offers a three-tier cultural competency curriculum that provides tangible best practices in advancing equity through recruitment, hiring, training/orientation, performance review, teaching methods, support services, student engagement, and policy and protocols.
Participants start the program with the Read to Act Collective, an initiative in partnership with GRCC Instructional Support. The next tier, the Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (J.E.D.I) Series, invites participants to examine their lived experiences within a diverse world. The final tier of the curriculum is the Cultural Competence Institute, an advanced level of training that fosters organizational and structural change in environments where conscious or unconscious cognitive behaviors influence prejudice and discrimination.
NOTE: Training participants and all GRCC stakeholders are encouraged to continue YOUR work toward cultural competence. We invite you to use the social justice and equity resources provided as a starting point.
