Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Consultant Request
We appreciate your interest in requesting a consult with the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We approach our consultation work as a collaboration between the Division and respective participants. As scholar practitioners we utilize theory and best practices to provide resources and support to our colleagues. This collaborative approach is only successful when all parties take personal responsibility to an ongoing commitment to change.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion consultants will provide recommendations, resources, and referrals in our consultation process. We do not provide individualized coaching sessions or personal professional development. We encourage you to check out the UNITE program or other institutional resources for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) for further resources to grow your own DEI professional development.
