The Office of Faculty Diversity provides support to Faculty, Departments and Schools, around issues of faculty recruitment, retention and diversity and inclusion training.
The Faculty Diversity Officer reviews allegations of sexual harassment, discrimination (gender, sexual orientation, racial, ADA) and also serves as a facilitator for addressing faculty diversity issues in areas related to faculty duties.
Diversity Awareness Training
We provide diversity awareness workshops and consultation services for students, faculty, and staff. In some cases, we develop a program specific to goals, participants, and time frame in order to accommodate the different classes, departments, offices, and student groups that request training.
Some sessions may be conducted jointly with other offices on campus.
Train the Champion
Train the Champion aims to foster an environment that embraces diversity; assist with retention and recruitment of faculty, staff and students; encourage overall workplace satisfaction; and foster a sustained dialogue on diversity, with specific focus on issues in higher education and at Case Western Reserve.
The eight-month program consists of monthly sessions and additional brown bag lunches to facilitate further, less formal discussions.
Power of Diversity Lecture Series
The annual series is designed to inspire campus dialogue, community engagement and civic education and learning about the national narrative on diversity and inclusion. All events are free and open to the public.
