Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training

The school’s Diversity Consortium furthers diversity and inclusion “by recommending efforts aimed at initiating, maintaining, and improving programs, policies, and processes that support a culture of equality, inclusion, fairness, and the value of all individuals.”
