- General Information
- Marist College is current engaged in efforts to train its faculty and staff in diversity and inclusion. To assist in these trainings, the college founded the new Marist College Diversity Leadership Institute (MCDLI) to train faculty and staff in “awareness, application, and action”. Furthermore, students will be required to undergo implicit bias and diversity training. See developments below:
Anti-Racism, Bias, and Diversity Training
The Marist College Diversity Leadership Institute "brings together faculty and staff on the Marist campus who are passionate about social justice and anti-racist work to empower those of us who would like to promote equity and inclusion practices." It aims to "Ensure a diverse and inclusive community by enhancing training and educational programs that value the importance of diversity and inclusion" and "Use our intellectual and human capital to help solve societal problems by endorsing training that helps leaders promote equity in practices and policies for all in the Marist community."
The college has "The Race and Gender Reading Group," which "aims to contribute to the campus discussion of these issues by providing an interdisciplinary setting in which students and faculty can look at readings together and engage in discussion of the points they raise and related topics."
