Division of Student Affairs

Student Affairs Diversity Team

Purpose

The Diversity Team offers educational opportunities designed to equip the Student Affairs staff to work well with diverse colleagues and serve diverse customers and students.

History

One 90-minute topical program per semester has been offered since the team was assembled in Spring 2005. This series, called “Insights for Effectiveness,” has included a variety of topics: students of color; disability awareness; LGBTQ issues; international students; transgender issues; gender communication; veterans’ adjustments to campus; a more inclusive campus; Islam and UNI; and Asperger’s syndrome. 

Program topics are offered twice within the same week, to accommodate potential attendees’ work schedules. Attendance per topic is about 150 to 200, including some faculty/staff from other divisions, as well as some student employees.
