Workshops often take place in the form of interactive presentations and can be tailored to the specific needs of those requesting. Our workshop topics vary, but they are all intended to help support you and the rest of our campus community by addressing concerns and providing a space for open dialogue.

This workshop is intended for white-identified students who want to move beyond a surface level understanding of race and engage in open dialogue about how white privilege operates in the United States today. This workshop is intended to increase students’ self-awareness of their own identity and privilege; understanding of race, racism, and institutionalized racism; and confidence in their ability to take action against racial injustice.
