DEI Classroom

Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion - Training Calendar

The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion offers a DEI Classroom series. This allows individuals in our campus and broader community to participate in trainings and educational opportunities without having to belong to a group that is requesting and/or receiving these trainings. We want our trainings and learning opportunities to be more accessible to smaller groups and interested individuals. If there are training topics you would like to see added to the DEI classroom series, please contact Assistant Director for Prevention and Education, Amy Kittle (amy.kittle@mail.wvu.edu).

Note:

·       Events may be canceled or rescheduled due to low registrations.

·       Other trainings may be requested here: https://wvu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6iiMX7QcxCb7qCx


**Training sessions are currently scheduled through June 3, 2022. Sessions will resume with the Fall 2022 Semester.
