The next cohort starts on Monday.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion work has never been more important in higher education. Sign up for our free five-day program to sample our suite of best-in-class diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training through two on-demand courses.

New to diversity, equity, and inclusion? Start with our 101 program to lay the foundation for your learning.

As faculty and staff, you have the power to help foster more inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, and staff. Because of institutionalized oppression and individual discrimination, LGBTQ+ students (as well as faculty and staff) experience higher rates of violence and harassment, which may result in negative academic and mental health outcomes. Studies have identified factors that contribute to more intentionally inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ community members resulting in greater academic success and better physical and psychological health. To create such environments, you must have the awareness, knowledge, and skills to interact effectively with LGBTQ+ communities.

This course will take a foundational approach to help you:

  • Define key concepts related to LGBTQ+ communities like sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression
  • Identify common barriers in higher education for LGBTQ+ students
  • Implement recommended practices to foster an intentionally LGBTQ+ inclusive environment
  • Reflect upon your own identities as they relate to gender and sexuality


How It Works

For 5 days, you will get daily emails Monday through Friday with bite-sized videos and articles that you can complete in 30 minutes or less each day. If you complete all modules within 5 days, you will have the chance to request a certificate. New cohorts start every Monday.
