DEI Learning & Development

Are you interested in training opportunities related to DEI? In this page you will find DEI development opportunities offered by Taubman College and the University of Michigan.

Taubman College

Identity Workshops

The “Identity Workshops” are designed for participants to interrogate their different identities and assumptions of themselves and others. Participants will leave with a better understanding of who they are and how their identities interact with the world.

Fall 2019 Workshops Schedule:

Click on this link to RSVP. Food will be provided. Help us plan for the event by RSVPing (we want to make sure we have enough food for everyone! You are still welcome to come if you don’t get a chance to RSVP). Also, let us know if you need any accommodations or anything else you would like us to know. 


Inclusive Teaching Workshops

Inclusive teaching involves deliberately cultivating a learning environment where all students are treated equitably, have equal access to learning, and feel valued and supported in their learning. Such teaching attends to social identities and seeks to change the ways systemic inequities shape dynamics in teaching-learning spaces, affect individuals’ experiences of those spaces, and influence course and curriculum design. Taubman College offers workshops for faculty throughout the year. Stay tuned for this year's schedule. 


University of Michigan
