Workshops & Training

One of the key components of the Multicultural Resource Center is to provide educational training for our students, faculty, and staff through several workshops including Building Bridges to Cultural Competency, Leadership Forum, and Self-Esteem Workshop.  We also give our students the ability to "build your own" workshop through consultation sessions designed at incorporating the necessary concepts according tot he needs of their specific organization.  We are always looking to help guide and improve the skills of our students through our presentations.  Click on the prezi presentation below or scroll down to get a quick overview of our different workshops.  If you would like to schedule a specific workshop for your organization, please fill out the form here.
