Diversity Training for College and University Athletic Departments

 Start the dialogue. End with Understanding.

The college and university sports world is one of the most diverse atmospheres in the world. Coaches and athletes bond through the spirit of competition and teamwork. Through our interaction, we learn each other's backgrounds and life stories. Understanding diversity and inclusion is the cornerstone of athletic, academic and personal success. 

Our on-campus training for College and University Athletic Departments allow us to develop inclusion strategies for coaches, staff and administrators. 

​The 2-hour Academy discusses:

  • Addressing Implicit Bias within Athletic Departments
  • Developing Avenues to Discuss Racial and Cultural Sensitivity
  • Transitioning from Diversity to Inclusion and Equity
  • Creating Impressions of Positive Diversity
  • Enhancing Communication and Interaction with Student Athletes

About the Inclusion Assessment

The Inclusion Assessment Meetings are aimed at producing effective dialogue on diversity, inclusion and equity on campus between students, faculty/staff and administrators. 

After the meetings, we will produce an extensive proposal detailing the avenues of discussion with the various groups. We develop a detailed assessment on the strengths of the campus environment and how it can improve in areas which could inhibit institutional effectiveness. The evaluation will provide immediate and long-term "strike points" which could provide a landscape for open communication between campus entities. 


Day One Meeting: Faculty, Staff and Administrators

In these sessions, we discuss the campus climate as it related to dialogue between academic departments and the connection with students of color. We focus on areas of communication in the classroom, working with student organizations and developing strategies in cross-cultural relationships. 


Day Two: Undergraduate/Graduate Students of Color

In theses sessions, we discuss the relationships between students of color  and faculty/staff inside and outside the classroom We also focus on developing comprehensive communication on the topics of academic advising, diversity recognition, avenues of conflict-resolution and campus engagement.
