UNH is in the process of developing and implementing a climate study that will include all students, faculty and staff. The objective of the study is to gather data about institutional climate, inclusion and work-life issues to better assess the learning, living and working environment for students, staff and faculty. The survey will be implemented under the leadership of the Campus Climate Study Task Force. The success of this project will rely on the efforts of the entire campus community, and will require the support of all.
Building Inclusive Courses & 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.
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).
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.
To schedule/attend sessions, call Safe Zones Coordinator at 862-5053 or visit their website for more information.

The 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 is facilitated in small-group settings
