Staff and Faculty Professional Development

Building Inclusive Courses and Classrooms

A series of workshops was developed in response to a recurring recommendation that came out of last fall's campus conversations.  These seminars seek to deepen our understanding as a learning community of the importance of creating spaces in which to engage productively in conversations related to difficult, uncomfortable, and controversial topics and to provide strategies for building inclusive courses and classrooms.  Click here for Fall 2016 - Spring 2017 schedule

Social Justice Educator Training

Social Justice Educator Training is a professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff, and graduate students to further their understanding of social justice and diversity issues. The eight-hour training, which is divided into two days, covers issues of oppression, social injustice, social identity, and facilitation in a small-group setting (limited to 25 - no cost to attend). Learn more about SJE training and registration.

Safe Zones Trainings

The Safe Zones Trainings are professional development opportunities for UNH faculty, staff, and graduate students to advance awareness, knowledge, and skills around the services and support that we provide to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) students and colleagues. Participants of Safe Zones Trainings are a campus-wide network of allies who are supportive of LGBTQ faculty, students, and staff and are committed to contributing to a campus climate of inclusion at UNH. Trainings are 1.5 hours in length. We offer department-specific trainings, and some trainings that are open to mixed groups of faculty and staff from various departments.
