  • The UNH Social Justice Educator Training (SJE) is a professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff and graduate students to further diversity awareness, knowledge and skill sets allowing for critical analysis of the services we provide, and of the relational dynamics we seek in a diverse institution. We will explore “social justice” via personal and institutional lenses to analyze: power and privilege, discrimination and prejudice, inclusion and equity through the multiple social identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, nationality, ethnicity, ability (physical and mental), religion, etc. This process will include open and honest discussions, readings, and interactive/experiential activities in a respectful environment. The eight-hour training which is divided into two days is facilitated in a small-group setting (maximum of 25).  More information about SJE...
     
  • The UNH 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. To inquire about attending or scheduling an upcoming Safe Zones Training, please send an EMAIL to Lu Butterfield-Ferrell. More information about UNH Safe Zones...
     
  • Anti-Racism Training is for anyone who wants to further explore whiteness as a socially constructed racial identity, the messages learned about being white and the actions one can take to be an ally across racial differences. We will outline the concept of privilege and explore the cost of internalized dominance, its impacts on our lives, and the current bias in our systems based on privilege and inequity. This session will particularly benefit those who are interested in exploring racism through a new lens and would like to have a greater understanding of their role in creating inclusive, anti-racist organizations and learning communities. Colleagues of all racial and ethnic identities are invited and welcome to participate.
